A few weeks ago, alliteration was the poetry topic. This week it’s assonance. According to the Oxford Dictionary: Assonance (noun) in poetry, the repetition of the sound of a vowel or diphthong in non-rhyming stressed syllables near enough to each other for the echo to be discernible.
I received this bit of assonance from Parker McCoy, author of the Fairfax & Glew series. You can find Parker McCoy’s books on Amazon.

Another good one from Parker McCoy!
Wendell blended wind chimes with bent implements in impish insanity.

Send me some assonance in the comment section and I will update this post to include your sentence. Have fun with it and keep it clean. 🙂 Be sure to share your website if you want me to promote it.
