Her Sleep Partner Looks Biting

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.

This form really speaks to my minimalistic sensibilities!!

What do you think?
