Tom’s Tale

Teeny tiny Tom,
Timid teenager,
Trickster’s target.

Torn, tired, teary,
Testing toughest trajectories,
Tumbling, toughening.

Temptation’s training,
Time’s teaching,
Timid Tom toughened.

Tom, the thief,
Tom, the tease,
Typical troubled teenager!

My attempt at a Tautogram Poem. Thank you so much Brad for introducing me to this style. It’s the toughest poem I’ve ever written.

      No no Rashmi, this was not effortless. I read about this form yesterday.
      Check out Brad Osborne. He keeps posting amazing new poetry form and his poems are amazing.
      So, last night I began thinking about the topics I could use. I couldn’t find any. I thought I’d write about ‘Burno’. Then I gave up. Today I read a few more poems in this form and gave this a shot.
      I’m really not proud of it cause I find this poem a little silly. Like I put anything that starts with ‘T’. 😅😅🤪
      Anyways, thank you so much 💕

      1. I can’t really write with bounds and norms.
        What I write are usually my thoughts and they’re formless. To write like how you did is a gift I don’t possess. 🙂

        i have, before. I don’t write much poetry these days. I am better, so I am told, at short fiction. I have several short stories on my short fiction blog, you can find it on my Blogroll, called Knitting Clouds, if you like. 🙂
