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.

(242)  Space Perseverance

We dance in space binary star.

Corona spotlight us from far.

Our azimuth to Aurora

Borealis orbs translunar.

The Drake Equation proof data

Of an entity in deep space.

A seemingly infinite place

To be concern in human race,

Our penumbra parallax grace.

Divide the ways through shady gray.

Harness the immense energy

From stars and quasar synergy,

To cast down on Earth’s perigee,

Stealth images that NASA feed.

We owe you an apology.

For supporting science fiction,

Rather than expensive mission.

That our Earth was once a flat maze.

Half of the inventions for space

Can be use right here in our place!
