Written for:  Carpe Diem Weekend-Meditation #10 Fibo-ku winter time

“The first line has one (1) syllable and the second line also. The third line has two (2) syllables, the fourth line has three (3) syllables, the fifth line has five syllables and so on. As I give the sequence it looks like this:

1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21 and so on

I will give you an example of a Fibo-Ku titled “this summer morning “

star light
the breeze
this summer morning
birds singing their beautiful songs –
young sparrows playing hide and seek in the dry sand of the garden

Here is my attempt:

with carrot
nose and chocolate eyes,
twigs for arms, wool hat and red scarf
from kitchen window they smile, hands wrapped ’round mugs of cocoa

I am a freelance poet, born and bred in Brooklyn, New York. I live with my husband, John, and two charming rescue dogs–Marion Miller and Murphy. We spent eight lovely years in Portland, OR, but are now back in New York. My goal is to create and share poetry with others who write, or simply enjoy reading poetry. I hope to touch a nerve in you, and feel your sparks as well.
