Last Christmas, our friends JY & JB bought us a set of "Haikubes." The set consists of some 63 six sided ivory colored cubes most of which are engraved with words, a few left blank, and a few with possible poetry themes. The idea is to roll some or all of the cubes and select 5, 7, or 9. I augment the idea and use as many cubes or syllables as I choose.
