Story In The Wind

Wind
tells
the story
of what has
happened yesterday
as it brushes past me today
A bad sense
touches
my
mind

Another day of trying new types of poetry.  This poem is a Fibonacci poem.  Fibonacci poetry was founded by Gregory K. Pincus and is a 6-line poem that follows the Fibonacci sequence for syllable count per line.
For the 6-line poem that means: 1 syllable for first line1 syllable for second line2 syllables for third3 syllables for fourth5 syllables for fifth8 syllables for sixth
The Fibonacci math sequence of starting with 0 and 1 and then adding the last two numbers together to add to infinity.0+1=1
1+1=2
1+2=3
2+3=5
3+5=8
5+8=13
8+13=21
13+21=34
and so on and so forth…There’s another variation that has taken flight in making Fibonacci poems that ascend and descend in syllables.
