Sally Shops

Written for:  dVerse Poets Pub – Meeting The Bar   (posted by Bjorn)
The Music of Alliteration, Assonance, and Consonance
“Today I would like you to try using different types of assonance and consonance in any poem of your choice. Try to listen to how it sounds, and see how you can enhance the connection between the letter you use and the meaning of the poem. Maybe you can add the beat of the poem with accentuated alliteration.”

Sexy Sally shops
in lingerie boutiques
looking for antique
lacy slips and amber
earrings. She has
grand plans.

About purplepeninportland

I am a freelance poet, born and bred in Brooklyn, New York. I live with my husband, John, and two charming rescue dogs–Marion Miller and Murphy. We spent eight lovely years in Portland, OR, but are now back in New York. My goal is to create and share poetry with others who write, or simply enjoy reading poetry. I hope to touch a nerve in you, and feel your sparks as well.

    She has grand plans

    It is often good to anticipate and be prepared long before the event!
