no

one

can hear

the silence

of liquid heartbeats

enfolding within the tightness

of constrictors bound to protect their viscosity

pinned to the mirror of soul's pain

each finds its own way

to silence

born

now

      I would like to take a trolley car ride through your brain to find out how you arrive at such a beautiful spot from a random thought. Exceptional work, Audrey!

      I sometimes think poetry is random--some kind of unlocking of our thinking process--thank you Bill!

      Audrey - Marvelous Fibonacci Poem and how silly of me! Not to realize that it could go on and then return. This opens up so many possibilities. Now, I shall never get any housework or yard work done today. :) That is OK. the chores will still be there tomorrow and the day after...but today is a day to write. :) Thank you, thank you. :) Theresa

      Audrey, this is superb!! I've been reading some of Deborah Brooks poems recently, and decided to experiment with writing some shaped verse, I'm really enjoying it. Theresa, not much housework is getting done here either. :)

      This is really interesting, because I am a programmer and we use the Fibonnaci as a project management tool, but this hub has given me a new outlook on Fibonnaci and a totally different use for it with poetry.

      This is beyond amazing. I love this so much. Possibly my favorite so far. It may have to do with the math, I have a weakness for connections. Jamie

      Probably the most unique use for the Fibonacci I have ever seen.

    • phdast7 profile image

      Theresa Ast 2 years ago from Atlanta, Georgia

      Still love this one, a lot. It was you who got me started writing Fibonacci Sequence poems. They speak to me and call to me like no other form ever has. :)

      I love the form, and the words just flow, bringing in the meaning. Fibonacci looks like a really fun form. Thanks for introducing it to us.

      You can conquer any kind or should I say form of poetry. This was amazing. I looked at it and thought, what the heck, but when I read it I found it absolutely beautiful. You dear lady are a true poet!

      Voted up, awesome, beautiful, and interesting.

      That is a very interesting approach to poetry. Is it possible that the words that come pouring out of our souls have mathematical properties? Outstanding poem and hub!

      Once again, I am completely humbled by your gift for creating poetry. You are the most brilliant poet of all poets. Voted up and across (not funny) and sharing.

      To have words come together like this is exceptional and indeed rare.

      WOW!!!

      what a gift you have and what a gift to us you are.

      "I'm a busy little honey-bee,

      Maths and such don't interest me

      Neither does the search for m-on-ey

      I'm too busy making honey.

      One day maybe I'll see our family tree

      Then you can lay Fibonacci on me

      Gran and Gramps and all the my folk

      Dancing to the numbers, it's no joke!"

      Sorry about the last line!

      Interesting hub eluded me for a long time
