"Anaphora is the intentional repetition of words or phrases at the beginning of successive lines, stanzas, sentences, or paragraphs. It is used frequently in both poetry and prose to create emphasis..." (Hamilton 64).

It's just repeating the same word or phrase at the beginning of multiple sentences. For example, in Ecclesiastes 3:2-8: "a time to be born, and a time to die/ a time to plant, and a time to pluck up what is planted" etc.
