PC : Sue Vincent


Shocked, saddened,

Seeking some solace,

Soul searches sweet serenity!

Sun setting slowly somewhere,

Soothing sea sounds

Sand shimmers


Stillness surrounds,

Soul sings song,

Some strength sets, slowly,

Saw self stronger, surely!!!

Thanks to Sue for hosting the writephoto prompt: Serenity. In response to this, I tried a Tautogram. Aishwarya @ Kittysverses posted a poem in this form of poetry recently and it pushed my mind to try one too. 😊

The tautogram is best explained by its Greek root words of “tauto” meaning “the same” and “gramma” meaning “letter.” Basically, all words in the poem begins with the same letter.


Thanks for reading. Feedback most welcome 😊

    1. thanks for that effort Aswathy, sweet of you πŸ˜‡ I struggled a bit as I wanted a pattern .. one word in first line till 5 in 5th and decreasing again. Dint work out.. then gave up and made two lines of 4 words πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚it’s difficult to hunt for words. Sometimes search seems so smooth sometimes so strenuous! (S es again ☺️)

      2. I was bit of a loner when I was a kid. My brothers are far too older than me, 9 and 11 years older. So I used to play alone all the time. Pretend plays and walking around alone were my favorite things to do πŸ˜€ Just wanted to know if you were the same.

        πŸ˜„ yeah. Hostel life was fun. For a quiet kid, I have done a lot of pranks in hostel actually. How I ended up in a college far away is a different story. But no matter what I did, the teachers or warden never believed that I did it. Thats how quiet I am πŸ˜„ Whenever they caught me along with my friends, they asked β€˜Aswathy?! what are YOU doing with these kids?!’ My friends went furious everytime hearing it cos I would be the one who might have planned the whole thing.


      3. Pretend plays with pretend people, my own imaginary best friend πŸ™‚ i used to chat with her sometimes .. same here i never had a group of friends till about 7th std. always played alone.. we two have a lot in common, isnt it?…

        and the second part …. ditto …. “what are You doing here with these kids” was most common πŸ˜‰
