Trapped Inside, By Donna Matthews


Let’s experiment with a poetry form today called TriCube Poetry. From Brewer,

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.


Trapped Inside

it’s Wednesday
change coming
I feel it

air heavy
rain for days
we need it

dogs playing
sensing soon
trapped inside

Now to you…wanna try a TriCube poem? Share a link in the comments below!

I am on a personal challenge to explore and write in 100+ different poetic forms.  To assist me in this journey is Robert Lee Brewer’s The Complete Guide of Poetic Forms where he gives the form and an example. Trapped Inside is #25 in this collection I’m calling, very simply, 100+ Poetic Forms.
