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

Well, I’m always on the lookout for poetry forms that are new, even to me. I happened across this one last year and it was so fun that I'm going to share it again, on Day 13, using all the same examples, etc. 

Let’s see what you've got this year, especially our newbies.

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

Hot or cold
Fills me up

Morning time
Ev’ry day
Make a cup

Whipping cream
Is supreme
Drink it up

Oh my gosh. I got on a roll and wrote a whole story. Not to worry, it's in stanzas so I could stick with the 3 lines, 3 stanza format. And, because I'm an overachiever, made them rhyme.


Writing now
Holy cow
It’s a plow

Need a plan
Could be man
On the lam?

Get words down
Will he drown
Get a crown?

Make him stressed
Flee the nest
Go out west.

Make him rest
Beat his chest
Find a guest

It’s a girl
Her hair curls
Her skirt swirls

Now they run
Get a gun
They’re undone

Bad guys win?
His chagrin
Her straight pin

See them win
They begin
Next of kin

My Tricube Poem:

How to write
Tricube poem
Thinking hard

Walking fast
Down the road
Helps me write

Writing out
All the words
Finished now
