The Fib

Haiku have rules that govern their construction, at least in terms of their syllabic content. Why not change the rules a bit?

GottaBook, a librarian and poet from LA, has devised a form that mirrors the Fibonacci Series! In this form, the number of syllables for each line goes as follows: 1 1 2 3 5 8.

Here is an example:

One
Small,
Precise,
Poetic,
Spiraling mixture:
Math plus poetry yields the Fib.

Neat!
