I’ve been playing. Can you tell?
And its been so much fun!
I ordered a set of ‘Haikubes’ a couple of weeks ago with the intent of creating haiku. In case you’re not familiar…Haiku is a beautiful form of Japanese poetry consisting of seventeen syllables; five syllables in the first line, seven in the second line and five in the third line. The idea behind the Haikubes is that you simply roll out the dice – which have words on them – and you create your poem from the inspiration on the cubes.
But I decided to shake things up a bit (pun intended) and create my own version of poetry, using the dice, but adding some visual interest instead of more words.
What do you think?
