Details

The fib is a form of short poetry, similar to haiku, with a syllable count based on the numbers in the Fibonacci Sequence: each new number in the sequence is the sum of the previous two. Start with 0+1=1, 1+1=2, 1+2=3, etc. The fib uses 1/1/2/3/5/8.

Oddly enough, this is the same mathematical principle that governs the formation of nautilus shells.

In
The
Darkness
Of my mind---
Images dark, dismal
Have lurked like predatory fish.

You know what to do now...

This poetic form was invented by Gregory Pincus on his blog. For more info, see wikipedia.org.
