Breaking the mould





The shape is baased on a fibonacci poem, which should be like this:   the first two lines of a Fibonacci poem contain 1 syllable or word, the third line has 2 words/syllables, then 3, 5, 8, 13 …:    dVerse wants us to play about with a form, so in my fibonacci, each line has one more letter than the previous one.

  2. A fibonacci – not a spiral but a Christmas Tree – exquisite, delicious, and not round but tall. I loved it and wished I could eat it up!

    I like this a lot – although it sounds quite finicky to write! Will have to try it myself – but I doubt I’ll beat your finger-lickin’ scrumptiousness!
