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.

(173)  I Felt Hershey Kiss

In your eyes, I see love disguise

In penguin waddling along shy

Child of mine in festive carriage

Nativity to be reborn.

In your smiles, I felt Hershey kiss

Marking the brown spots on my face

With caramel breath whispering

The price of candy bars on sale.

Does our child have the same craving?

In your slender fingers wrap mine,

Dry compulsive carrot sticks shine,

Cleanse by hand gel sanitizer.

We stroll windows for the smart look.

In your shoes, I have walked the miles

To find the sunken treasure style.

A modern metallic jewel

Radiance from head to feet heel 

On love by the number to shield.

Our fashion statement, well balance

With spending smack, our love gromance.
