What is alliteration poetry?

Question - WPress1

Q: What is alliteration poetry?
A: Alliteration poetry is the repetition of the same sound or letter at the beginning of each or most of the words in a sentence. The easiest way to use alliteration would be to repeat the starting letter of the words.

When I alliterate, I do not find just this interpretation to be entirely satisfying, nor structurally versed to be effective as a poetic expression. Alliteration deserves more. …so, there is the way I prefer to say it,

I often ask friends and family to ‘toss me a word’,

as this ‘word toss’ then becomes my ‘alliteration inspiration’.

Often, I need to research the definition of these word tosses, just to be sure I get the storyline correct. I get to create, and learn new words!

I want to share some of my alliterative writing…

Word toss = bifurcation 

(bifurcation = the division of something into two parts)
‘By broaching bad bureaucratic behaviors biased by belligerent bickering between bureaucrats bounded by bought bifurcation boundaries; better, bona fide benefits become believable.’

Word toss = paper
(paper = paper)
‘Pen and paper, patiently poised… pending penning of potential poetic publications; pertaining to periodic perking of perceptive prose and purposes.’

Word toss = Purple Prickly Pear
(Purple Prickly Pear = a species of cactus found in the southwestern U.S. & northwestern Mexico)
‘Purple Prickly Pear plants prefers parched, porous plateaued plains providing periodic precipitation. Protruding pins punctuate palely pigmented paddle-profiled pads.’

Word toss = loquacious
(loquacious = tending to talk a great deal; to be talkative)
‘Ladies of like-minded literary liaisons & local libraries lead lengthily loquacious lectures.
Laborious listening lends to lighthearted luncheons located in luxurious lobby lounges; while lapping lightly-liquored lemonades ladled to long lines of lingering lesson learners.’  
~ EWK   ©2015

And perhaps, this is the most famous and classic alliteration poem known to be written…

‘Peter Piper picked a peck of pickled peppers; A peck of pickled peppers Peter Piper picked; If Peter Piper picked a peck of pickled peppers, where’s the peck of pickled peppers Peter Piper picked?’ 
~ Mother Goose
