NaPoWriMo Poetic Form Challenge 8/30: Freestyle Fridays

2016 NaPoWriMo

Welcome to Freestyle Friday.  Today the poetic form is a Fibonacci poem invented by Greg Pincus .  Visiting friends in Idaho, the morning air is filled with a symphony of birds.


Mourning doves,
Coo-ah, coo, coo, coo
Red-wing blackbird calls o-ka-leeee

on the path
such a symphony
creating my own melodies

It’s Poetry Friday and it’s held by  Laura at Writing the World for Kids.

    I’ve never written a fib before – was looking for the pattern… which makes me wonder if there is a line missing in the second fib? The words are beautiful – but I fear I have been counting… (And then clicked across to Greg’s site to read up on them.) That o-ka-leee sounds delightful!

      Thanks for noticing and for letting me know. Am travelling today and will revise when I get home.

  3. Your poem captures the beauty of a morning walk perfectly.

    Lovely. It’s impressive when a form doesn’t feel…formal.

    On a side note, when redwing blackbirds sing, I hear “ko-ka-ree!” Maybe an eastern dialect? 🙂

  5. Those are beautiful birdsongs. And I like your double fib, too.

  6. Jone, this is just lovely. Such a peaceful feel to it.
