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.

(228)  Driving Pass One Another

The seasons will change our two lanes;

However, you and I remain

Untether to ascertain job.

Someday, I drive with my head bobs

Like a car dash toy gone berserk.

Till one day you wave with a skirt

On backward, must be the new style.

Anxiously chagrin, I didn’t smile.

Spring storm arrives to us stranger.

No one seem to care for danger.

Until our crush become a crash,

We party inseparable dash.

The two lanes remain indifference.

One spark retains incandescent.
