This month, I am collaborating with nonfiction author and photographer, Christy Peterson. You are invited to write and submit a poem based on the photo in the comments.
Poetry Friday is hosted by Irene at Live Your Poem. Thanks, Irene. And thanks again for organizing the fabulous Progressive Poem which lands at Irene’s blog today. Here’s the month-long schedule:
PROGRESSIVE POEM 2017
And now for today’s poem:
Well, it’s Friday, so how about a double Fibonacci? Thanks to Greg Pincus
for inventing this form.
leaf litter for food
hop forward and hop back, scratch
foraging for insects and seeds
Trilling and churring
in the shrubs

What a sweet little bird. Like many others, I love the “trilling and churring.” I’m intrigued by the form, too, and may have to try my hand at a double fib. Thank you for sharing, Jone!
I like how your brought their double hop into your double fib!
Perfect form for the subject. Well done.
Charming, Jone! I like the shape, too.
A double fib? How cool is that? He’s a real cutie, that fox sparrow. I’d like to hear that trilling and churring.
This is a new kind of sparrow to me, Jone, and you’ve included the facts very well in your poem. I’ve never written a double-fib before, well done!
The description of the fox sparrow in your poem reminds me of my chickens foraging in the grass as they search for food.
I like the words trilling and churring! The shape gives it an extra spin for me.
Well done, Jone! The fox sparrows of the world are trilling and churring for sure! xo
A double Fibonacci just because it’s Friday? I like the way you think. Nice poem, too.
I’d never heard of a Fox Sparrow before, what a charming little bird, highly worthy of such a poem!
