Saturday Mix – Lucky Dip, 21 October 2017

Your challenge is to write a Fibonacci poem about an animal (the number of syllables in each line of the poem is the sum of the previous two lines: 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8).

Gee, thanks Sarah. This is a new one on me!

Quick,
Duck!
What? Where?
Duck you fool!
Why so excited?
Too late, ball’s hit you on the head.

(OK, I cheated)

Try again:

Look,
Ducks.
Mallards.
Two of them.
Both looking confused:
Odd, there were boats here yesterday.

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have recently lost our beloved dog Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney, and now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of my GSD so had hers done too. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

    Lol! 😂 the first one sounds like me too! Ball sports were never my forte.
    I love the second one too – I can picture the ducks’ confusion and watching animals work things out can be amusing!

    Thanks for joining in the Saturday Mix. You did a great job with two very fun Fibs!
