Witch's FIB

the lump
on the witch,
on her square-cut chin
wondering where our poem starts.

This poem is a FIB, a modern western-style poem.

It follows Fibonacci's sequence of 1-1-2-3-5-8.  Can you write your own FIB today? Check out the  definition at whttp://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fib_

Can you imagine what the witch's wart might be able to tell you? I hope you enjoy test driving this form.  Have fun.


  1. Oh terrific, Joy. Halloween is such a rich holiday to write about!

  2. It sure is. Wonder where else this witch could have warts.
