More Mathematical Poetry

The poem is not about math, but has a mathematical form called the Fib. This form is based on the Fibonacci sequence (1,1,2,3,5,8,…). Each verse has six lines and twenty syllables, with each line having the syllable count of the corresponding Fibonacci number. I’ve written three stanzas in this form, and I’ve added a little rhyming to twist it up.

Sleep Deprived

Some

bright

morning

see the light –

it is a warning

of the fast approaching day – blight!

A

day

is not

far away

each night. Time soon brought

the light. Stop time! Let darkness stay

Let

rest

remain,

no light crest

horizon. My bane

is morning light. Haste sun to west!
