X uhhhh, mmmm may, that's a hard one. I think I'll skip to y and say Yikes!
So that leaves Z and then we can start a new category.

Just popping in with my pedantic self to point out that a lot of these weren't onomatopoeia, but exclamations. Granted, there's a bit of an overlap, but in general, onomatopoeia is a word imitating a sound, and exclamations are words indicating strong emotion.

For Z: zzzzzzip

That's okay Jan because at the beginning I said if you couldn't come up with onamatoepia, feel free to use an exclamation. Since you finished the alphabet, do you have a new topic to try?

How about haiku? Only the first word would have to begin with the alphabetical letter. Here's one for A...

Alabaster vase
Topples from the self. Needles
Scatter everywhere.

Reminder: haiku should paint a word picture. There are 3 lines, with a syllable count of 5, 7, 5. No title.

If you don't think this will generate much interest, it's fine with me if you pick something else.

That's a good idea Jan. I'm terrible at hearing syllables. (My daughter and I were just talking about that last night. She's teaching her 1st graders about syllables.) But I'm up for a try. Can't promise it will be correct...

Bubbles are bursting.
Soapy suds are everywhere.
My granddaughter laughs.

So was that right? I kept counting on my fingers. I don't know why I can't hear things like that. My band teacher also wondered that. Often while throwing his clipboard at me.

Cats playing happily,
Meow, tumble, hissing, chase
So fun to watch them!

Dandelion puff,
Dancing delightfully high,
Spreads seeds everywhere.

I can't tell you how many times I had to count on my fingers to get the 5-7-5 count. I'm still not sure it's right, but I didn't want to look in a dictionary.

E anyone?

Shann, since the haiku idea doesn't seem to appeal to folks, feel free to start a different one. I'm fine with that.
