Day 13 ~ “Tricube Poem” for “30 Poems in 30 Days” #NationalPoetryMonth

Day 13 ~ “Tricube Poem” for “30 Poems in 30 Days” #NationalPoetryMonth

I’m always on the lookout for poetry forms that are new even to me. I happened across this one ~ let’s give it a try!! Oh my!!

It’s called a TRICUBE and the premise is

 3 + 3 + 3 =

Three stanzas

Three lines each

Three syllables per line

RHYMING DOES NOT MATTER . . . but watching your syllables does!! So COUNT THEM OUT!! Three syllables per line!

How hard can that be? You might be surprised. Here are a few I came up with but I’m expecting better offerings from all of you! Cheers!!

A new day
Rising sun 
Hope eternal

List of chores
I’ll get done
Later on

Nightfall comes
Chores not done
Not surprised


Baby boy
Toothless grin
Wants grandma

Hug my boy
Here’s a toy
What a joy

Baby boy
Cries nonstop
Go see mom



My kitten
Heart smitten
‘Til bitten

Mean ol’ cat
What a brat
None of that

Sad kitty
Not guilty
Still picky

Day 13-Tricube Poem

Three stanzas
Three lines each
Three years teach

One two three
Happy me

Easy it is
Write them down
Count them out.


Why can't we
Go outside?
No, we hide

Life goes on
We stay safe
It shouldn't chafe

It will be
You will see

Write a line!
Easy they say!
Not too sure!

Drink, Drink, Drink,
Water, Water, Water,
Pee, Pee, Pee!

I think you've got the numbers turned around because we already had day 11. So this is day twelve's lot:


Sun shining
Birds singing
Me walking

Rain falling
Garden drinking
Future plants

Wind blowing
Pollen blows
Nose flowing
