The Tricube – Day 1

a light breeze
cools my skin
warm to touch

sweet fragrance
of roses
wafting by

joyful sound
of birdsong,


Happy Monday! New week, new form. This week we’re exploring the Tricube. It’s an interesting form, slightly challenging, but ultimately satisfying to write. Here’s how to write a Tricube:


Here are the rules of tricubes:

• Each line contains three syllables.

• Each stanza contains three lines.

• Each poem contains three stanzas.

So we’re talking cubes in mathematical terms (to the third power). No rules for rhymes, meter, etc. Just three, three, and three.
