Hello folks....a very dear friend of FOS....in fact, its creator "MightyPendragon, has sent you a form to play with. The renowned mathematician Fibonacci (c.1175 - c.1240) is responsible for this poetry form. He is responsible for the concept of a series of numbers produced from the sum of the two previous numbers.
1. 1. 2. 3. 5. 8. 13. 21. 34. etc…
Poets who chose to use this form, need only decide whether to use syllables, (like the cinquain, etc) or words. Whichever is chosen it is an extremely impressive visual poem as Karen Davies shows below:
the breeze in a storm
of crimson symbolize changing
seasons. Summer fades and falls soft as autumn catches
her death in falling crimson leaves swirling to their grave on a magic breeze ride to peace.
Their their little brown spirits battle on the breeze like little soldier leaves fighting WW3 until the white angels fall to take them home.
(Information from Shadow Poetry)
And one from MightyPendragon himself:
across the divide
the space that separates us so
as we allow our few divisions to slowly grow
becoming a canyon so deep we cannot ever seem to cross it, try as we may
until the pained reverberating tones echo back and forth, building a bridge between us that we cross freely, enjoying our newfound love
Have fun ...but no counting on your fingers

Hello one, hello all.
Neat little form, here is my first stab at it.
words discribing grey.
Watching circles that cannot turn,
chained to the knowledge life has forced us to believe in.
Throw away the bloody dice and wash tomorrow with the silence of a shedded tear,
proving survival and extinction are only reflections of truth with lies to be consumed or vomited when tasting love one last time.
Question Sir Bronze:
Can the numbers be switched around, say instead of 13 - 21 - 34 etc, could you go like 8 - 8 - 16 - 8 - 24 - 10 - 34 or something like that?
Happiness is a warm gun.

Tim...thanks for your contibution posted here...very nice.
In reply to your question:you should be able to start on any number you wish, but then from there you have to follow the rule of the sum of the two previous lines - so going 8 - 8 - 16 - 8 would not work. If you start on 8, you can do 8-8-16-24-40-64 etc...
All else is a nonce form and not a Fibonacci...
