The Teardrop Crown
Fibonacci Poetry (The Fib)
While she is crying
Her eyes out every night before bed
And put on a smile
No one knew she was faking it
Her that look
Full of anger when
She didn't do anything wrong
Her that she
Has dodged a bullet
She doesn't need that gaslighter
Of her life
And she wears a crown
She made it out of her teardrops
Fibonacci poetry (or the Fib) is a 6-line poem that follows the mathematical Fibonacci sequence for syllable count per line.
For the 6-line poem that means:
- 1 syllable for the first line
- 1 syllable for the second line
- 2 syllables for the third line
- 3 syllables for the fourth line
- 5 syllables for the fifth line
- 8 syllables for sixth line
There are variations where the Fibonacci expands even further with each line, but to understand how to accomplish this, you need to understand the Fibonacci math sequence of starting with 0 and 1 and then adding the last two numbers together to add to infinity.
and so on and so forth...

Dharrsheena, I love the poetry where you experiment with formatting! I also appreciate the insights on how Fibonacci poetry works. Is was a sad poem with a really deep meaning but you wrote it so beautifully! 💜
Brilliantly done! You've inspired me to try one myself xx
Form and content go so well ... both the structure and the story build together. Please, Vocal, a Fib challenge!!
I really liked this poem. This would be great for Vocal to do as a Challenge. Fib poems, it would be unique. :)
Wow this is so powerful Dharrsheena! We never really know what is going on in someone’s life many times. Beautiful, relatable, tragic, touching. I loved learning about this type of poetry!!
Love this. So much said in each line
Very well done. Clearly took a lot of talent!
Beautiful Darsheena! Knowing you are enough is powerful 🤍
Heartfelt! That ending was beautiful.
Heart-wrenching but a nice poem overall. I've never encountered this style/format of poetry. This was well done. The writing was lean and the concise, and the concept was conveyed eloquently. I enjoyed this.
Sad. SurREAL! ❤️

Excellent form here, absolutely well done, hearted my friend!! I enjoyed the form so much
It was like a great meal. As beautiful to look at as it was to digest. Very nice <3
This is a great poem! I was familiar with the Fibonacci sequence, but I’ve never seen it used in poetry before. This looks like a fun way to challenge yourself.
This is excellent. Well done.
Wow! You are very talented. I think that's your first poem I read, but it is very catchy. Love it!
Amazing poetic form and you did it well!
I absolutely adore how you're always trying different things with your writing! Not only was this beautiful poetry that I deeply felt, but your form was just so cool! Great work!
