PF–Fibonacci poems

74707-poetry-friday-logoIf you didn’t have a chance to watch Laura Shovan’s fabulous Nerdy Book Club Facebook appearance, I highly recommend it. During part of this poetry extravaganza, she focused on Fibonacci poems, and offered several resources to facilitate writing these poems with students.  After watching Laura talk about Fib poems, I realized that I’d never written one. Oops!  Inspired by Laura and some of my recent photos, I set out to rectify that omission.

This week’s Poetry Friday Roundup is hosted by Jama Rattigan at her sumptuous blog, Jama’s Alphabet Soup. She’s celebrating spring with some fabulous art and poems by Sara Teasdale and Mary Oliver.

    I love fib poems and doing them with my students. The form worked well for these amazing photos.

    How fun and glorious! I enjoy the feeling of movement in the second poem especially. Oh, I would love to be freewheeling today. Alas, I proctor. sigh.

      Thanks, Linda! I love their blue eyes. Apparently the inside of their mouth is brilliant blue as well, but I haven’t seen that yet myself. I remain ever hopeful 🙂
