I love new poetry forms and have written this down in my notebook to try. Your poem describes the process well!
Kim, what a nice topic and metaphor for writing. Very effective, with so few words. I love the rhymes, and the advice to “grab your pen” (proactive), but also the “listen in!” where the magic happens. Beautiful.
Oh, I love this poetry form! It's new to me, and just feels right for something that has been rattling around in my head for a few days. Thank you!The poem itself is so evocative, and so very true. It is wonderful.
How you manage to capture such power in so few words, Kim! I feel the mighty “word rapids” and sense the changing levels… this all happens during writing. As do the droughts, lol. And now I'm gonna have to try writing a Tricube. You never cease to inspire!
