Tall talented Tess teaches trigonometry.

Tight Texas traffic triggers tympanometry.

Twenty Texas top-notch teachers test.

Tiny trendy Teresa tressed.

Tollway Taxi tips tollbooth trainee.

Trainee terminates timekeeper's tee.

Thoughtful trainers thankfully thank.

Temporary theorized thoughts tank.

Terrifying thieves thwart.

Tarnished, ten ton trucks transport.

Thick toast treat toss the teaberry topping.

Troublesome tender toe throbbing.

Talkative teens twist.

Technical Theory tossed tritheist.

Tuesday tickets to theater.

Timid television technician treater.

Thrifty traders talk televisions.

Target tags trendy televisions.

Typical train trail tracts to town, true.

Twilight tea taste taboo.

Tenacious team tries, then takes their timeout.

Thin thread tied transforms, then takeout.

Time to travel to Tennessee.

Textbook testimonial tunes timpani.

Therapy task transferred treasured trout.

Tarnished tiger table teases tryout.

Telephone touch tone transfers talk.

Telling tall tail truths, that told tick tock.

Writer's notes: Vocal said, "Write a poem where every word starts with the same letter.

A tautogram is basically a fancy term for a word game where every word starts with the same letter or sound. It's like alliteration, but taken to the extreme! It can be a fun way to play with language and create a memorable effect in writing or speech, as well as an effective way to challenge yourself as a writer.

In order to qualify as a tautogram, your submission must meet the following requirements:

Every word in your poem must begin with the same letter. You can choose any letter in the Roman alphabet.

Iο»Ώt must be submitted to the Poets community. Choosing a community is a final step in the submission process. Your poem will be rejected for word count requirements if it is submitted to any other community."

Admittedly, have written a sentence or two with all the words starting with the same letter. Never! Reiterating, I have never ever written a tautogram poem. This is a my very first.

TRENDING is submitted into the Tautogram Challenge.

Thank you for reading. You are appreciated.
