Fib for Wednesday


Bone, at Three Word Wednesday, offers these words for today's prompt: apartment, began, numb. He runs a fine meme, always draws good bloggers. You're welcome to play along!


Fibonacci poems are one of my favorite forms. Wikipedia has a bit of starter information if you'd like to become acquainted with this style.




Next?

bored
numb
bloodless
she began
a new CraigsList search
for a rent-and-share apartment

I loved this. Loved how you worked Craigslist into a timeless seeming poem

I agree, it works quite well.

A well-crafted poem, great arrangement of sound and meaning. I'd be numb too if I had to share with a stranger! Those days are behind me, and I'm grateful!

nicely done. I had not heard of Fibonacci poems, but it's something I might try because I like the wordplay challenge of fitting into specific forms.

Have a great day!

I've heard of Fibonacci the mathematician, but never poetry based on it.
Words and numbers seem to be coming together in surprising ways.
I like it.

This one feels really dark and sinister to me. Like whoever she found to room with her needs to sleep with a knife under their pillow.

You are so good with fibs!

Can it get any worse than this?

lissa said...

definitely wouldn't want her as my roommate. reminds me of the movie - single white female - a bit scary.
