An Adventure in Tricube Poetry

three

 

Tricubes – are mathematical poems, based on the number three, and the form was introduced by Phillip Larrea. I found it on Robert Lee Brewer’s Poetic Asides blog at writersdigest.com. 
 
rules of tricubes:
  • Each line contains three syllables.
  • Each stanza contains three lines.
  • Each poem contains three stanzas.

Today, I offer you three, lighthearted tricube poems, just for fun:
 
 
1
 
I can see
you are not
what you seem
like a wolf
in clothing
made for sheep
you may seem
harmless but
I see teeth
———-
2
in the ink
you may find
what you seek
whether truth
or escape
from this dream
all I know
is to spill
let it speak
———
3
 
it’s been said
I fly with
my own wings
there is strength
in the truth
this thought brings
still some days
I’m weighted
by small things
