I've been practicing this poetry form and having some fun with it. There are no rules for them as far as meter or rhyme, but I like adding rhyme to them. They are quick and easy to write, so I wrote several. I posted them with some of my photos to help bring them to life.

I love these Connie and I've never heard of them. I need to give it a try. Thanks for sharing your awesome talent with us.ReplyDelete
Coincidentally i was just reading my favorite Longfellow poem "Day is Done" which is the last line in your Peaceful Pond Poem. He along with Robert Service are some of my most favorite poets of all time. Your poems - all of them are so good - descriptive, visually appealing in my mind. Really really nice.ReplyDelete
very fun. Your poems captured the scene. Your photos were just an added bonus. I love the dragonfly oneReplyDelete
I think you did an excellent job with these poems, Connie. I agree with Sandy, all your poems are descriptive and visually appealing.ReplyDelete
Sounds challenging but you did a great job.ReplyDelete
great job Connie and the pictures are amazing, especially the one I love is the nature one. Have an amazing weekend.ReplyDelete
This is an interesting and new-to-me poetry form, and I think it'd be a fun exercise to write a few poems that follow its 3-3-3 template. They're also fun to read, but as good and evocative as your examples are, the non-varying sameness of "threes" isn't as aesthetically or viscerally pleasing to me as other forms of poetry. (Is it okay to say that...?)ReplyDelete
Have a super weekend!
Very nice! That's a fun type of poem, and you did a good job. Beautiful photos too!ReplyDelete
These are all wonderful, Connie! It's hard to pick a favorite. I'm going to try to write one of these.ReplyDelete
What fun. As opposed to the haiku, I'm much more inclined to try this. I especially love how your final lines add the perfect and perfectly uplifting touch.ReplyDelete
Also a new poetry form for me, Connie, and I liked the way you conveyed complete thoughts in each short tribe.ReplyDelete
whoops meant tribcube...spell check is NOT helpful when it changes the original intent.ReplyDelete
These thoughts are fun and I like how you added pics to them. LJReplyDelete
Oh how fun- you did a good job with these!ReplyDelete
Wow! I love these poems and the photos are awesome! What a wonderful form of poetry. Thank you for introducing this type verse to us. I want to try my hand writing some of these tribcube poems.ReplyDelete
I love your poems and the sound of a train at night can be haunting.ReplyDelete
I've never heard of that kind of poetry before and was wondering how a person could be creative with it. After reading your tricubes I am impressed. 'Sleepless Night' was my favorite and brought memories of many nights I'd hear trains in the distance and found the sound comforting.ReplyDelete
Awesome poems. They each bring out the theme. And the pictures you posted along with each poem - beautiful.ReplyDelete
I really enjoy this style of poetry, and you are superb at capturing images with words.ReplyDelete
Those are all really nice poems, they remind me of spring and summer! Especially about the bull frogs, the dragonfly and the berries!ReplyDelete

Thank you, everyone. I had fun experimenting with this form. I don't think I'll make a habit of writing these, but it was interesting to try and be creative while maintaining such a concise form.ReplyDelete
