Thanks to Mary Lee @Poetrepository and @A Year of Reading for the great idea of “Playing with Poetry”.
I have my tools ready and am looking forward to a month of wordplay.
I believe my niece gave me the box of Haikubes for a birthday. I’ve used them a couple of times. So first up is a haiku. If you are not familiar with Haikubes, there are 63 cubes. Two are in red cubes for inspiration and the rest are words to create a 5-7-5 haiku. This is what I found today.

The Progressive Poem starts today at Matt’s place.
This makes me think of the times when we watched from our lifeguard stands as storms rolled toward us and began to rumble. How long could we let the kids swim? When did we need to play it safe and clear the pool?
We played with the haikubes in one of my classes today. Can you post the poem in the text as well? I’m afraid my old eyes can’t read the cubes in the photo.
Fun that you all are ‘playing’ this month, Jone. This haiku came out interesting, didn’t it, that ‘swimming dilemma’? Happy April!
Ooo. The simple peace. Perfect. I decided to kick off with some paint chips from Home Depot. Happy NPM!
