Forgiveness (Fibonacci)




and forget.

Toss aside grievance

Carve out cancerous memory.

Re-cant harsh insinuations with impunity 

and restore wrecked relationship with soothing harmonious speech, a balm to the soul.

I love Fibonacci poems!  I was first introduced to the beauty of different forms of poetry by Greg from Memoirs of a Dragon who experiments with all forms, and has challenged me as an amateur poet.  This poem is pretty self-explanatory, and I hope it resonates with you, as at some point in our life we all must forgive and forget.

Fibonacci:  a non-rhyming poem structured with the Fibonacci sequence (0 or 1, 1, 2, 3, 5 etc).  Fibonacci sequence is adding the two prior numbers together to get the new number.   If one starts at “zero” then the first two lines are single syllable. Most poems stop at 13 syllables for the last line.  


Drudge (Senryu)

 “Marriage unity”

cold passionless home

mean maid and paycheck


I believe that some wifes’ feel this way at some point in the relationship, especially if the husband has other, more important interests.  This was an attempt to describe the feelings of worthlessness and servitude that women feel in very simple form.

Senryu:  the style is the same as Haiku but the theme is related to feelings and relationships.
