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

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.
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!
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.
