Thankyou!


Coconut
Water
Refreshing sweet
A welcome respite
From the scorching sun’s heat
Bowl full of nectar, a parched throat’s delight
Oh! Fruit of palm, come and appease. Hanging high above, please don’t tease
I doubt, like me there's another connoisseur. In my palm you are treasure
I thank you palms for this wonderful treat
Nectar-like, coconut water does beat
All juices clearly
Favorite always
Coconut
Water






Fibonacci poetry is a literary form based on the Fibonacci number sequence. The sequence begins like this: 0, 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21. In order to find the next number in the sequence, you add the two preceding numbers. The sum of these two is the next number, which then is added to the one before it to get to the next number, and so on. This is how it works:
1 + 0 = 1
1 + 1 = 2
2 + 1 = 3
3 + 2 = 5
5 + 3 = 8
8 + 5 = 13
13 + 8 = 21
etc.
Fibonacci poems can embody the number sequence in two ways, either in numbers of syllables or in numbers of words. 
This Fibonacci Poetry has especially been written for The Theme Thursday

Nice little coconuts can also whack you in the head if you are not careful when they fall. Thunk! :)

That is an interesting structure for your poem. I like the shape of the lines it creates. Palm trees bring to my mind crystal clear lagoons and clean white sands, and the time to enjoy them both. Thank you for your post.

Brian Miller said...

Lesley said...

I remember how surprised I was at my first taste of coconut water. Until then, I wasn't fond of the coconut.

DearThank-you for the advice. I will take a more circuitous indirect route to the place of coconuts!"Put the lime in the coconut and drink it all up!"Harry Nillson http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CgdU9OaSMkw

Nice try at a Fibo - Reverse Fibo Vibbzzz!!! :D

Nanka said...

Loved your try at Fibonacci Poetry with coconut as the theme. Another drink I so much love besides the syrup chai you talked about in another post.

Must tell you this, remember the coconut trees in our school?? One did fall on a friend of mine at assembly time. Know LOL's there...unfortunately she was looking up and it fell on her eye. No damage was done.

Claudia said...

...your writing made me wanna have a coconut...mmmmm...

Roy said...

What an interesting use of the Fibonacci sequence! I've used it to create sounds in FM synthesis and non-tempered scales in music. It lends itself well to playing around. Great take on the this week's theme; good work!

Meri said...

Not a fan of coconuts, but love the structure of cinquain, haiku, etc. so I'll try this new-to-me form.

PattiKen said...

Thanks for the introduction to a new form of poetry. And coconuts? Yum.

Loch Rob said...

Mathematics of the poem aside, I enjoyed your writing. Very visual with imagergy. Thought provoking too. Something about those connoisseurs, right?

Francisca said...

It's a but late, but you might find my last TT post a nice complement to your poem. :-) http://viewthrumygloballens.blogspot.com/2010/08/fresh-coconuts.html

Everyday Goddess said...

Delicious!
Excellently written, since the energy it must have taken to conform must have taken some deep thought.
