Haynaku - Invented by poet Eileen Tabios, 2003

Form:
A tercet
A total of 6 words: 1 in the first line, 2 in the second line, and 3 in the third line.
There is no restriction on syllables or stresses or rhymes.

Variations:
In the 'reverse' haynaku, the longest line is placed first, and the shortest last. The total is still 6 words: 3 in the first line, 2 in the second line, and 1 in the third line.


Judi's Poem of Haynaku Instructions:

Tercet
Six words -
Rhyme, syllables, unimportant.

 Fibonacci sequence poetry is based off the mathematical form known as the Fibonacci sequence, in which the next number is found by adding up the two numbers before it.

0, 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21, 34, ...

Start with 0.
0 + 1 gives you 1 again.
The 2 is found by adding the two numbers before it (1+1)
Similarly, the 3 is just (1+2),
And the 5 is just (2+3),
and so on!

The mathematical Rule is xn = xn-1 + xn-2

The Rule for Fibonacci poetry is fairly simple.  Each line has the number of words that would be next in the Fibonacci Sequence.

Judi's Fibonacci Sequence Teaching Poem:

Fibonacci
Poem
Starts short.
Lines' word count
Are easily determined by adding
The two previous lines' number of words together.
In theory, you could go on making lines for a very long time, 
But in practice, a few steps along the sequence will probably get your point across clearly, while making math geeks happy!
