From my travels I pick you up

all so colourful and bright

in different shapes and sizes

each , with a story to tell.

You sit snugly together

on my refrigerator,

taking me back in time,

kindling fond memories

of holidays spent with

family and friends,

of the beautiful places visited.

With open arms you welcome

new magnets to your clan,

that each of my trip brings.

I wish we humans could emulate

the camaraderie you exhibit.

Alliteration is a term that describes a literary stylistic device. It  is the repetition of the same initial letter or the same first consonant sound in a sentence. For example,

The slimy snake slithered slowly or Tim tasted the tangy tangerine.

So, here I am presenting to you my set of alliterations from A to Z with the central theme of nature. Do add on your list to it . I’m sure its going to be some fun time.

Acute avalanche made the ascent arduous.

Blooming buds, beauty at its best.

Cumulus clouds congregate at the celestial carnival.

Divas dancing on the desert dunes.

Environment endangered, no escape.

Flocking flamingos feast on fish.

Grumpy goats graze on the green grass.

Hungry hyenas howling across the hills.

Idle icy icicles iced indefinitely.

Jack and Jill joined the jungle jaunt.

Ken knelt on the knoll to look for the key.

Lilies on the lake, look lovely.

Mighty mountains mesmerized the meandering minds.

Nature nurtures and nourishes.

Owls ogle at the orange Orangutan.

Painting a placid pond on paper.

Queer quails queued up quickly.

Relentless raindrops rattled the rooftop.

Serene surroundings satiate the seeking soul.

Treacherous terrain made travelling tough.

Uma underestimated the power of the unicorn.

Vera took a vertical view of the vineyard.

Wafting waves and winds wallowed in a wonderful waltz.

Xavier xeroxed the Xylobium.

Young yak looked yonder to see a yellow yo-yo.

Zealous zebra zipped through the zoo zone.


The last meal!

The doctor had given up all hope on her ailing child. The mother brought her son out for dinner, probably  their last meal together!
