Paul Brookes chose the Tautogram for us to explore last week.
I didn’t like this form much, far too exclusive. I think I have quite a rich vocabulary, but this was a struggle. Pick any letter and there will be plenty of nouns, verbs, adverbs and adjectives that begin with it, but, unless you pick ‘t’, virtually no articles, conjunctions, prepositions or pronouns, and phrases need those too. Still, struggle or not, I’ve set myself the challenge of writing one of these for each letter of the alphabet, except the silly ones. Here is ‘s’ to begin with.
soft sand sifting,
shifting sea-green, sea-blue, sea-purple swell,
sheet-metaled, silver-plated scavenged stars,
sinking slowly seawards.
Sea serpent stirs
singing storm songs.
