I’m no math whiz as far as whizzes go, but I can hold my own in most things mathematical and scientifical. Just don’t require me to do calculus or I’ll go all F of X on your *. (I don’t know how to type the Fx function properly so maybe I’m not half as whizzy as I thought I was.)
Anyway, I like numbers just fine and I like sequences. I also like making up words that make sense even if you can’t use them in Scrabble. Getting back to numbers, there’s this thing called the Fibonacci Sequence that goes like this; 1,1,2,3,5,8,13,21,34…… you can figure out the next number by adding the last two numbers listed. It can go on for ever! It’s way more interesting if you look it up on Wiki.
Anyway, again, one of the first bloggers to like my posts is yaskhan https://yassy66.wordpress.com/. She wrote a poem using the Fibonacci sequence. I was intrigued, I followed and decided to write one myself. Hers was Haiku-ish in that she used a syllabic count. I probably would have done the same, but I didn’t remember until I was seven lines in, so I stayed with it the turned it back around. You know, there and back like Bilbo ‘n crew. I roughed it out while in the woods last week and made it presentable today.
Rustlings 10/8/19 to 10/15/19
shag bark hickory
sugar maple cherry white pine
silent witness to the rustlings of woodland creatures
both great and small squirrels barking wood frogs chirping chipmunks scurrying insects buzzing
the background whine of rubber on asphalt as travelers rush to their distant destination a counterpoint to the whisper of nature
i watch and listen by the old stone wall and the elbow tree that together marked a field's edge in days long past where now a forest grows and dry leaves litter the ground
thinking about why i'm here not the little here or the big here but the middle here what drew me here
let the philosophers puzzle out why we're here the big here that is
i know why i'm here in this place
i'm hunting deer and peace
i found peace
In case you’re wondering, it was a squirrel!
I just looked at the preview and saw how it would post, I didn’t mean to make you work.Thank you for your indulgence.
