Our prompt this week is Assonance.

Create a brief list of words that have a similar vowel sound. Then, using your list as a guide, write a poem that uses assonance in one or several places. Be sure to read your poem out lout to yourself to hear the musicality that these sounds added to your poem.

  1. Love your prompts. Here’s my little take on assonance:

    Cosmic Morse Code

    The light of a dead star
    still sparkles in my night sky,
    relentlessly spelling messages
    into the darkness of destiny.
    I don’t speak sun.
    I know it reads:
    Sing your song,
    even if nobody listens.
    Your story will find a home,
    one day.
