Saturday Mix – Lucky Dip, 22 February 2020

Welcome to the Saturday Mix – Lucky Dip, 22 February 2020!

For this week’s Lucky Dip, I have reached into my mystery bag and pulled out a Tautogram. The topic is up to you!

You may be thinking to yourself, What on earth is a Tautogram?

Luckily, Writer’s Digest has an explanation…

Tautogram Poems

The tautogram is best explained by its Greek root words of “tauto” meaning “the same” and “gramma” meaning “letter.” Basically, all words in the poem begin with the same letter.

So pick a letter–any letter–and get poeming!

Note: A variant form of this poem could employ a unique starting letter for each stanza.

Example of a Tautogram

Thoroughly Terse Tautogram

Twelve turkeys trekked through Turkey
to tell tales that tackled topsy-
turvy televangelists traipsing through
turnkey topics turned to tropics,
though ten teased topical tenets.

    It would have been easier if I didn’t need 99 words…

      I found the tautogram much harder than expected. Finding 99 words that flow is a true accomplishment

      I’ve submitted my work, I hope you’d enjoy it. When I wrote the poem (Childhood Carnivals) I didn’t even know that such type of poetry is also specified in a form. Thanks for hosting !
