A ReVerse Poem ~ May 28, 2023

It’s Sunday, and time for another ReVerse poem, looking back at the Tricube. I think this ReVerse captures the past week very well. It’s a meandering journey through my scattered brain, that at least found a few moment of lucidity to write poetry. It was a gentle week. Though life threw me a few more lemons to squeeze through, writing helped me find the present. Helped me to pause, to breathe, to find peace…to silence the what-ifs, woulda, coulda, shouldas. Rereading each day’s thoughts has been a calming exercise.

All is well. This moment. All is well. Peace to you and those you cherish. 💚


A ReVerse Poem ~ May 28, 2023

me…breathing
wistful thoughts
all is well
unspent still
no regrets

earl grey tea
it takes time

I miss touch

A ReVerse poem (a practice I started many years ago) is a summary poem with a single line lifted from each entry of a collection of work over a particular timeframe and re-penned in chronological order as a new poem. Unlike a collaborative poem, the ReVerse features the words of one writer, providing a glimpse into their thoughts over time.


The Tricube – Day 7

we need more
kindness, more
compassion

it is fear
of others
that broke us

hugs were once
innocent
I miss touch

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

it takes time
for some plants
to bounce back

uprooted
repotted
in new soil

like caged birds
who forgot
how to fly

Today is the last day of the Tricube. I enjoyed this form very much. It challenged a fair amount. Three syllables can get tricky. As in life it’s best to keep things simple. Tomorrow we will explore another micropoetry form, the Pleiades. Have a great weekend!

Tricubes

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.


The Tricube ~ Day 6

I take my
earl grey tea
with sweet cream

lavender
and jasmine
with honey

sweet shortbread
tea biscuits
for dunking

The Tricube – Day 5

even if
I could change
the outcome

I wouldn’t …
I would choose
the same path

no regrets
gratefulness
for this life

The Tricube – Day 4 – Sebastian

Sebastian

my old cat
Sebastian
matted fur

naps all day
in the sun
skin and bones

twenty-two
years, nine lives
unspent still
