Last week, we explored different ways of getting into a poem.
This week, we're exploring the building blocks of poetry: the words and sounds. We will try a variety of different techniques that can all be combined in a wide array of forms (which we will explore more fully next week - and since I'm aware that formal poetry isn't for everyone, I'll have an alternate prompt each day next week).
But for this week, let's have fun exploring words!
Today's prompt is to write a poem using alliteration.
Alliteration is sort of the opposite of end-rhyme. Alliteration is words that have the same sound in their first (stressed) syllable (we'll be talking more about stressed and unstressed syllables tomorrow or the next day, so don't worry too much about that part for right now).
