silent owl glides ‘oer

parallel wakes of rhyming straw

    thouroughly enjoyed them all…beautiful.I read in my email most days, but this trio of postings deserved a personal visit to say, lovely work friend.

  2. Doing a bit of research on Haiku, I discovered Fibonacci (Fib) poetry. And yes, you are correct, Italian! I was very familiar with Fibonacci, the Italian mathematician, but not of this style of poetry, which is 1,1,2,3,5,8. My Mathematics background, all of a sudden, kicked in!

    Beautiful picture and I love your play on the word “Till”. The last line really is quite charming. I had never thought about straw in such a way before.

    • That was deliberate and I am delighted you caught that. I find writing short, patterned, rhythmic verse quite challenging, as each word can take on multiple meanings. I have always found Fall Harvest to be somewhat … mathematical as well as rhyming! Growing up, I built straw forts out of straw bales, with steps, buttresses and tunnels. Straw…is under-appreciated!
