Wednesday Wonder of Words: Free Poetry / Cartoons

Why is alliteration attention grabbing? Maybe the same reason rhyming is? When you hear an alliterative sentence, do you try to anticipate how many more words will start with the same letter? When reading poetry, do you wonder which line will have a rhyming word?

I suppose that’s why I have Music Monday, Tuesday Tirade (or Tidbits—Mmmm, tidbits), Weird Wednesday, Thursday Thoughts, Free Book Friday, and the almost alliterive, Weekend Wrap-up.

Poetry does not have to rhyme, but it does need to use words to evoke a thought or emotion. There is power in words, both helpful and harmful. We just need to make the right decision about how we choose to use them. Choose wisely, my friend.

To celebrate National Poetry Month, my latest collection will be free (Kindle) until April 3.

A collision of ideas and a wonder of words.
Remember when you first learned that a grouping of owls was a parliament?

In his second poetry collection, Leon Stevens explores familiar themes such as human nature, the environment, and personal observations, many with a touch of humor. Also included are the poems from the 30 Poems in 30 Days Challenge and a short story inspired by one of them.

Here is the title poem in its worldwide premier:

I hope you enjoy my newest collection.
