Wednesday’s #undeadpoets Challenge “Cleave-Fib”

Today’s challenge poetic is to write a “Cleave-Fib” (a term I just coined). This will entail writing two Fibonacci sequence poems of (o),1,1,2,3,5,8 for a total of 20 syllables each (a “Fib”), and then joining then as a Cleave poem, where the two poems become a third poem.

I will give it a shot here as an example:

Love (Fib)

Love
needs
faithful
adherence,
owning what will come
believing in the greater good.

Life (Fib)

Life
gives
pleasure
longingly,
where pleasure is due;
if you will but only believe.

Love and Life (Cleave)

Love……………………………………..Life
needs…………………………………….gives
faithful…………………………………..pleasure
adherence,……………………………..longingly,
owning what will come…………….where pleasure is due;
believing in the greater good…….if you will but only believe.

I did these as first draft, flash-poems, but you do not have to do that. Please feel free to take your time.

Rhyme on!
