A Fibonacci Poem*

Cold

Days

Looking

Forward to

All the holidays

All the family gatherings

Travelling long distances is a part of it all

We gather to renew meaning of family through food fellowship and arguments

It’s when the ‘black sheep’ of the family rise to the occasion the star of the ensuing chaos we grumble rumble and love them still

Calm returns and you no longer wonder why you come to these things thoughts return to story-telling by elders reminiscing on tales from long ago new memories and being grateful for family, even the crazy ones

For Thotpurge Micropoetry Month Day 5

*A Fibonacci Poem has 10 lines with 55 syllables on the last line! Kind of a hefty micropoetey, I say.

The number of syllables in each line follows the Fibonacci sequence (0, 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21, 34, 55…)!
