Patterns – Late March Challenge #14

One weekend away, and I totally fell off the wagon that was Cloaked Monk’s March Challenge. One prompt has still been insisting it be given voice though:

March 14
On this day in 1879, scientist Albert Einstein was born. At an early age, Einstein showed great interest in math and science. Reflect on patterns.

I read this and thought “fibonacci would be perfect for this!” And so:

spots
stripes
patterns
camouflage
predator and prey
forever playing hide and seek

Clutter

stuff
things
chaos
encroaching
filling up the space
both physically and mentally
as it spreads like the sticky strands of a spider’s web
entangling me, suffocating me in its cocoon of inertia and stagnation

Yes, I’m using the order of the Fibonacci form to fight the chaos of the clutter 😛

Heat Wave Poem

Haze
Heat
Humid
Midsummer
Even the birds pant
The sun beats down mercilessly
As the air smothers like a wet, woolen blanket

Fibonacci Odometer Reading

Tonight, DrQuuxum’s odometer rolled 12358. And so is born:

new
car
road trip
adventures
the odometer
marking memories in miles

Gargoyles in the Garden

There are two points of inspiration for this poem. First, I received an email that Jack Huber had published a new article at Associated Content, this one on the Fibonacci poetic form. While contemplating the form, I saw a post from a friend who wants to go to Phipps Conservatory’s Summer Flower Show: Gargoyles in the Garden.

still
stone
hidden
gargoyles
playing in the leaves
finding mischief in the garden

I really want to go see the show. And the agave is blooming!
