kiss of faith (a fib)

Come
out
of your
self-made cave,
new morn’s warm kiss waits
to end your night sky’s loss of faith.

F is for Fib.
The Fib is the brain child of American screenwriter, Gregory Pincus found in his blog at GottaBook in 2006 . The Fib is his solution for the need to write Haiku with a few more syllables. Based on the Fibonacci concept of the sequential numbers 0-1-1-2-3-5-8, It is a hexastich with progressive syllable count and has become very popular on the internet. The elements of the Fib are:
  1. a hexastich, a poem in 6 lines
  2. syllabic, syllables 1-1-2-3-5-8

Flowing: A Fib

Words
flow
from the
poet’s heart
then towards her mind
then moves nerve-to-nerve to her hands
to make her patiently waiting pen and fingers dance.

Fibonacci or Fib sometimes called the Fib, is a movement to write verse with stanzas of increasing lines and is named for a mathematical concept developed by the 12th century Italian mathematician Leonardo Pisano Fibonacci.

The Fibonacci numbers are 0,1,1,2,3,5,8,13 and on, adding the last 2 numbers to determine the next in line. The form appears to be first used by poets in the 20th century in America and Denmark. It is similar in concept with the Cadae.

The Fibonacci is:

  • strophic, written in any # of strophes in which the number of lines of each strophe increases corresponding with the Fibonacci concept as the poem progresses. (Was not able to follow this. :D)
  • rhyme and meter are written at the discretion of poet.
  • written in variation in which instead of number of lines in the stanza following the Fibonacci concept, the poem is a single strophe and the lines are written in sequential syllable count corresponding with the Fibonacci concept. 0-1-1-2-3-5-8-13 and on . . . syllables per line.

Soar
high,
leave thy
weights and loads,
tear off doubting cloak,
follow the sun, let go, just float.
