While, er, ‘researching’ just now I came accross the blog of Gregory K.Pincus – inventor of the Fib.

A Fib is a wee poem that follows the Fibonacci Sequence – that is 1/1/2/3/5/8 – the mathematical pattern that is found in nature (eg Nautilus Shells) and in Sacred Geometry is said to be all sorts of perfectly wonderful things… very mystical.

here is mine:

I never thought I’d say this but I love Fibs…

  1. I love your post!

    (I hadn’t heard of “fibs” either, as poems, though I am well aware of those wonderful mathematical sequences.)

    Welcome aboard this traveling show.

  2. Thanks for introducing me to the fibs form–I hadn’t heard of them either. And welcome to Poetry Thursday! I got started with poetry here just about a year ago… and it’s been great. Keep sharing.

  3. I absolutely love them – fibs are fun to write. Like haiku, they look easy but aren’t, at all! Yours is fun!
