A dose of fetish. Good friends. An incomparable muse.
Welcome to the Saturday Mix – Lucky Dip, 26 January 2019!
For this week’s Lucky Dip, I have reached into my mystery bag and pulled out a Tongue Twister. The topic is up to you!
You may be thinking to yourself, What on earth is a Tongue Twister?
Luckily, Shadow Poetry has an explanation…
A Tongue Twister poem is made up of lines/verses that are hard to say when read aloud by using similar consonant sounds in succession (use of alliteration). In other words, the poem ties your tongue into knots. This form does not require end or internal rhyme.
Example of a Tongue Twister
Example #1 Serenity Mystic moonlight, moments meet... Softly, somewhere songbirds sweet... Simple, soothing, soulful sounds... Mem'ries murmer, mossy mound... Wander wistful, winding ways Linger, loving, lilacs lay... Lazy langour, listless leaves... Weeping willow, wonder weaves... Pausing, picture, pristine plain... Ruling romance, restive reign... Rising rapture, rustic ride... Perfect pleasure, peace presides... Copyright © 2001 Natalie J. Case
Example #2: Six Pink Minks And Finks six pink minks think finks stink six finks think pink minks stink six minks in creeks with finks stink if six pink minks pick stinking ink finks if six pink minks had six sticks with six pink ink finks in six creeks then six minks and six finks would have sixty six pink minks and six ink finks then sixty six pink minks and sixty six ink finks would make six ink finks stink cause six pink minks make finks stink Copyright © 2001 Sean R.
