Fibonacci poems to end the year

The Fibonacci Review publishes regular issues of Fibonacci poetry. The site explains it better than I can, but the poems – Fibs – are based on the Fibonacci sequence – lines with increasing numbers of syllables: 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, and variations of that.

Three of my poems appear in the December issue – French Nocture and, together, Bar, and Musicpoemusic. Fibs are fun, if challenging to write – check out some of the other poems in the issue to, some of these poets are way cleverer with the form than I am.

Two new Fibonacci Sequence Poems

Two of my untitled “Fibs” have just come out. One [Childless Couple] in issue #6 of Muse Pie Press’s journal The Fib Review, and the other [Thin] on the Undead Poets site.

A Fibonacci poem is based on the Fibonacci sequence, with lines of 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8 syllables. The main page of the Fib Review explains it much better than I can. The device makes for some neat poems, and some of the other wonderful poets in the current Fib Review are doing some mind-bending stuff with it – check out Horns by Mark Arvid White – extraordinary.
