The chug-a-lug churning of trestle trains -
sulfur spewing in darkness and dusky domains
wheels whipping wildly - sonorous sounds,
hurtling haphazardly and grazing the ground.
While cars carelessly trace the track,
passengers patiently bracing their backs
and daydreaming about destinations.
December Form Challenge, 2012 :iconkiwi-damnation::iconprojectdfc:


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.
1st line- x syllables
2nd line- x+2 syllables
3rd line- x-1 syllables
4th line- (x+2)-1 syllables
5th line- x-2 syllables
6th line- (x+2)-2 syllables
7th line- x syllables

It does not have to rhyme.

Very nice use of sound here. I love the flow and the seemingly flawless transitions from rhythm to rhythm.

Thank you for sharing,
Tristan Cody.

Very nice! This is a style that would be one I could do. And seem to do in some of my poetry, although not in a set format as this. I love the way you rhymed it, too.
