Lake Posted May 22, 2009 Share Posted May 22, 2009 Fib is an experimental Western poetry form, based on the Fibonacci sequence. The first number of the sequence is 0, the second number is 1, and each subsequent number is equal to the sum of the previous two numbers of the sequence itself, yielding the sequence 0, 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, etc. So for a Fibonacci poem which is made up of 6 lines the syllable count is as follows: 1 syllable 1 syllable 2 syllable 3 syllable 5 syllable 8 syllable I played with this: Why does spring come so early? April snow awaits, in hibernation bears snore on. I know he is there watching on the other end. My heart quivers at such a thought. The pain- less tree has been cut down to frozen ground. A pain to see a greenless spring. Sage said: be it white or black, the one that catches the mouse is a good cat. Topnotch! Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
