Fibonacci Poems x 2

Writers groups are wonderful places to meet talented people. I am lucky enough to belong to such a group in Katikati.

One of the ladies recently read out the following two Fibonacci poems she wrote regarding loss.

With her kind permission I would like to share them with you.



acutely felt

deprivation and panic

are gradually replaced by desolation.

The loud and all encompassing silence insults resolution.

Routines, habits, customs suffer disruption

as the struggle

to comprehend



LOSS (2)


the glass,

raise the draught,

turn to the usual chair.

No one there! Whisper “cheers” to crowded memories.

Savour the drop and reminiscences.

Decide on changes

to life

I was born in the land of Banjo Paterson, gum trees, and weather extremes. I am a freelance writer. I live in the Bay of Plenty, New Zealand, but still like to claim my Australian heritage. I graduated with a Bachelor of Communications in 2008. I am writing my first novel. I love to write poetry, short stories, and also write for the web. And there is nothing that is on a par with a sunny summer's day spent at Waihi Beach.

There are two things I know for certain. One: Bert and Ernie are gay. Two: I want to hear your opinion.
