New Poetic Form

I used to write tons of poetry. Usually inbetween classes at college. I had about five minutes to crank something out or revise something from the period before.

Writing on a 15 minute break as an adult seems like heaven. Plus I can accomplish three times as much.

I usually wrote free-verse, but I was particular as to how it appeared on the paper and sounded. Meters scared me, but I could handle themes, alliteration and imagery just fine.

This new idea - The Fib - is credited to Gregory K. He uses the premise of the The Fibonacci sequence and does a fantastic job explaining it.

It's a perfect combination of Math, Science, and Literature.
