Fabulous Fibonacci


                Fabulous mathematician

                      Praiser of patterns

               Sequence spotter, analyser      
                         and establisher

                Saw the world as it was
                 designed in perfection
              And drew the connection
                    in all its perfection
         all the mathematical perfection
                 Thanks oh Fibonacci
              for seeing what we didn't
                  showing the purpose
            of wonderful mathematics
                and drawing attention
                to wonders of creation


Linked up at Poets United where we were challenged to write a Fibonacci poem.

Great poem - i love the line - saw the world as it was designed in perfection - maths and creation work in my book!

An ode to Fibonacci, for sure. Your love of math and poetry meld beautifully here, providing this reader with a deeper appreciation for "the plan." Thank you, Emma, for this thoughtful contribution. Nicely done.
