A Fibonacchi Poem

shimmers face
dancing silhouettes
across dark walls of emptied room.

Elizabeth Crawford  4/12/16

Notes: The Fibonacchi form is syllabic and based on what is called the Fibonacchi Sequence of numbers, and is often referred to as The God Sequence, or God’s Fingerprint because it reoccurs most often in nature (petals of an Iris, nautilus shells, etc.).  The poetic form is created thus:

1 syllable for first line
1 syllable for second line
2 syllables for third
3 syllables for fourth
5 syllables for fifth
8 syllables for sixth

The image is a pen and ink line weave drawing, put through the kaleidoscope (often using the Fibonacchi Sequence) and then the colors were inverted.

Musical Inspiration for today’s prompt:

    Love it — I have often used the Fibonacci sequence for poems, taking it even beyond 8, and then reversing. Your words in this form pair well with the image!


  2. The candle I left out of my poem shines brightly at your place. This is lovely, Elizabeth.

    Oh, very cool. I had forgotten about this form.
