My 1st Alliterisen
Consider consonants for just a mere moment Mouths move; the pharynx, phonal, is an articulator So too, there's the velum, which the tongue touches The hard palate, plainly, has a curvy, smooth surface And, also, there's an alveolar ridge Then there's the tongue tip, blade, front, back and root as well The teeth are articulators and, lastly, lips
The Alliterisen (Complex and Rhyming), a form created by Udit Bhatia, is a simple seven-lined poem with a specific syllable pattern and two alliterations per line. For example: Glorious Graves, and wonderful waves. Alliteration is the succession of similar consonant sounds. They are not recognized by spelling, but rather by sounds.
I realized upon completing this poem that it doesn’t quite follow the rules of the Alliterisen because it relies upon assonance, rather than alliteration, in the 5th and 7th lines! Oops!
