Haikubes: Playing with Poetry #playingwithpoetryNPM 27/30

This month, I’m tagging along with ChristieMargaretJoneMary Lee, and other writers to play with poetry for National Poetry Writing Month. I’ll be creating poems using haikubes, metaphor dice, magnet poetry, paint chips and anything else that catches my fancy.

For the last four days of this daily poetry challenge, I decided I will write one final poem using each tool or toy. I decided to get my least favorite–haikubes–out of the way today.

Zorro is staring at the haikubes. The cats LOVE these things. He pounced a moment later.

I think one of the issues with these haikubes is how boring the red topic dice are. I was going to try one more haiku since I liked the weirdness of “A Dream about My Childhood” well enough and started to see some possibility in writing semi-sensical haiku, but I got “A Tirade about My Work Life” and “A Tirade about My Romantic Life” on back-to-back rolls, and that made me quit. Who wants to write a tirade about anything, especially in haiku form?
