The Prompt

Write an acrostic using the word distraction.

Read all about it here

I wondered if I could do this Acrostic as a Fibonacci.

The final line would have to have eighty-four syllables, hopefully, my counting was right. Put me right if it isn't.

Fibonacci In Music

The music is Mozart's Piano Sonata No 1 which uses The Fibonacci Sequence. Read about it here





To This Thought

Really, Now Should I

Attempt A Fibonacci To

Contemptuously Enter This New Vocal Challenge

To Tell You The Truth, I Feel I Am Taking Liberties, I Am Sure You Feel The Same

I Cannot Believe How The Fibonacci Format Geometrically Increases After Just A Few Lines, What Do You Think Of This?

Only Time Will Tell If This Experiment Will Work Or Not. I Hope My Mathematics Are Correct. The Penultimate Line Should Have Fifty-Five Syllables. This Is The First Time My Lines Of Poetry Take Up More Than One Line.

Now This Final Line Is A Story In Itself. Eighty-Four Syllables In A Single Line Of Poetry. A Fibonacci Poem Could Go On Forever. You Can See How Easy It Is To Lose Count In Cases Like This. This Is Almost A Series Of Microfictions or Micro Stories. Still, I Bring This Fibonacci To Its End
