Adventurous Alliteration Analysis

Another evening of insomniatic contemplation edges by, and produces from my mind a
most intriguing exploration in to my ability to alliterate by sentences. I took this
featured picture last night of the Bay Bridge when I was traipsing about the
Embarcadero.It made for a nice photograph, I think. Not bad for a cellphone camera.

This was a fun, but frustrating one to compose. The dictionary definition
of alliteration is as follows:

“the occurrence of the same letter or sound at the beginning of adjacent or closely
connected words”

Following is the story of the sun setting, the moon rising, and then dawn yet again being
destined to break the darkness. It is meant to narrate how the brightness of life can
embrace us in its pleasant warmth of goodness and wholesomeness, and the darkness can
take it away mercilessly. However, the bright side of things is that we can come out of
the darkness again to see the light – to see the good in life. As human beings, we are
susceptible to failures and accomplishments alike. As the wave of our existence
climaxes and falls, we learn to roll with the punches and overcome our shortcomings to

I hope you all can find a positive message in this one!


As the sun slips bashfully behind the broad, secluded supine skyline

Its lustrous light lingers no longer, leaving the limitless land lurid

The mysterious moon makes moves to maintain its moonlit manipulation

Darkness decorates the desolate, dimming distant spreading still-starless sky in drab dress

From the fading fireplaces of farmhouses and family homes, faint fluorescence flows

As the ethereal evening envelopes every estate’s edge, stars eagerly emerge

Radiating rays of reckless resplendence restlessly roam the region

Collecting clusters of concordant eyes to contemplate their eternal effervescence

Laymen looked on lethargically, lulling their hypnotized heads with heartfully lackadaisical lullabies

Nonchalantly nodding off in to the nothingness of the nefarious nightfall

Unaware of the unearthly utterances of unearthly unbalance unraveling unanimously

The world was waiting weakly while whispering waterfalls of wonderment

Dawn drearily dragged itself desperately, dripping dollops of dim daylight downward

Twilight tried tensely to thwart the trembling temptation to tiredly turn in

But being bullied beneath the brilliance of brightness beaming boisterously behind it

Rescinded restfully regarding repose rightly repaid to its relentless rally

Though the things thought thereafter through timeless trances tarried

Humanity hinged haughtily heavenward hoping helplessly, having hallucinated horrors

Slumber streaked silent suggestion sloppily spattered shortly, silhouetted by scrupulosity

Relief reclaimed reticent remembrance realized by rambling reasoning

So the shining sun slept, the mystical moon mounted, then the daring dawn drove down the darkness.

From fear and faltering consciousness comes capable resolve reminding rabble of sanguine salvation.
