Inspiration Comes (Fibonacci) - Jim T. Henriksen


I
am
sitting
quietly,
listening for the
quiet noises in the darkness,
ghostly images flying between the tall pine trees,
illusion created by the mind, made by shadows, the brain playing tricks on itself.

It sits there, the raven, black as night, looking at me with its dark eyes in the dark night. Inspiration comes. Words form in my head. Nevermore.

Jim T. Henriksen (born 1974) Norway
Fibonacci is a non-rhyming style that uses fibonacci numbers in the syllable count:  1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21, 34, ...  The poem should have a minimum of six lines, but could have more. To get the next Fibonacci number, add the two previous numbers. (21 + 34 is 55, 34 + 55 is 89, etc.)
