Certainly, By Donna Matthews

Happy New Year! Here’s to new days of spilling words, creating beautiful things, and leaving a piece of ourselves for others to find 💙

Let’s have some fun with a poetry form today called Tautogram Poetry. From Brewer,

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 begin with the same letter.


cobwebbed clutter
consuming corners
clings, collects, chokes
chthonic, cryptlike, chaotic

Now to you…wanna try a Tautogram poem? Share a link in the comments below!

I am on a personal challenge to explore and write in 100+ different poetic forms.  To assist me in this journey is Robert Lee Brewer’s The Complete Guide of Poetic Forms where he gives the form and an example. Certainly is #23 in this collection I’m calling, very simply, 100+ Poetic Forms.

Hey y’all, thanks for visiting the Go Dog Go Cafe and I hope you enjoyed reading today’s selection.

I’m all about love, people, sharing, and doing life together and would love to get to know you. I host two blogs…the first, The DJ Ranch, documents my personal adventures while the second, Slay The Chaos, focuses on mindsets, technology, productivity and organization. Come on over for a visit sometime 💙
