Several months ago I read, at Which Silk Shirt, about a poetic form based on the Fibonacci
series. This was irresistible to one whose father was a math/science teacher.
In a “Fib,” the poem builds in the same way as it does in nature: 0-1-1-2-3-5-8. Those numbers represent syllables. The first line holds zero syllables (or silence); the next contains 1 syllable. The following line also has only 1 syllable, and the next, two, and so forth until you get to the last line with 8 syllables. A completed Fib has 6 worded lines – most of them short.
Here is my very first Fib . . . honestly.
until a single
failure breaks into this darkness
