Tesseract, or: Beyond

An Alliterisen

Poetry requires rich, dynamic descriptors
Witty, winding words make for versatile, vivid verses
Scrumptious syllables cleverly comprised of
     luscious letters: crispy consonants, velvet vowels
 Fearless phrases so saturated with
     mysterious meanings, pulling people into
     romantic realms and dreamy, dappled dimensions

The Alliterisen

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.

  1. This mental maelstrom triggers thoughts! The velocity of vowels and consonants crashing hits my heart and strikes my soul. I am utterly undone!
    (accept my applause)

  2. I could NEVER.
    On top of the syllabic structure (too complex & constraining for me) the mandatory alliterativity put this one off my list of potentials.
    You, though, have not only met both of those challenges, but you’ve done so masterfully well.
    Very cool, David
