Journal 48
A Collection of New Alliterative Verse
by ArchDuke Kenneth Khanh Du

“My reflection upon the current climate which send heat waves simmering throughout time.”

New Alliterative Verse has five set parameters defined by me:
1. A couplet line poem with 20 lines or less
2. Each line contained no more than eight syllables
3. Each line has alliteration of either consonant or vowel
4. The alliteration must be tied to the next line (hence couplet)
5. Rhymed or unrhymed

Alliterative Verse as a form was adopted by me from the skalds of Norway. Skalds were the Viking's poet-musicians and their poetic form began somewhere in the 9th Century. The original form(s) with many however remain unstructured and often confusing /or ambiguous.

(141)  The Lost Qi Art

I remain focus.

Constellate on a locus.

Sending auxiliary impulse

To persuade your fleeting thoughts, note

Of me vex on Chinese guqin,

With Heaven & Earth rattling sins!

Once I absorb their life essence,

I will return to claim my den.

I will tether binary lips

To speak no more of nonsense tip!

When hip rappels down to your floor

Begging for mercy will be your

Undoing my untainted love!

Breaking through to you engulfing

The harbinger of destruction!

Sorcerer of reconstruction!

I cannot wait any longer!

You must give in or be stronger,

Because the dark force grows inside!

My love for you will cyanide!
