Anything goes, but keep it seemly...

Da Fib

Postby emm » Thu May 25, 2006 11:49 pm

Poetry is hot! You've probably heard of - the Fibonacci Poem - the number of syllables in each line equals the sum of the syllables in the two previous lines so it goes syllable-wise per line 1,1,2,3,5,8,13,21,34,55 - though most are only 6 lines.

It's been popularised by Gregory K. Pincus - and Da VC of course - and hundreds of them have been written in the last couple of months. There are heaps of great Fibs on GK's blog and also wordfreaks and other places.

Here’s his first one
Gregory K. Pincus wrote:One
Small,
Precise,
Poetic,
Spiralling mixture:
Math plus poetry yields the Fib.


And one for math initiates from geomblog

Here’s mine – Fiboku

Numbers
Nine in line
Numbers that entwine
My lines of nine look real fine
I’ve got oodles of numbers but I'm minus the time

Dawn
Wake
New day
The Sun shines?
Obviously not;
It's "Summer" but I'm in Britain,
And the Sun doesn't shine just because you're righteous.
I'd much rather be somewhere else such as floating out on the Med or in Tennerife.
Whether to do a Sudoku puzzle now or just give up and lay in bed, I really don't know or care but one thing is certain; I don't recall it being nearly as cold when I was young or when I lived in New Zealand.

Actually, I prefer:

Way down deep in the middle of the Jungle, a hippo took an apricot, a guava and a mango. He stuck it with the others, and he danced a dainty tango...

Have you heard of the Tribonacci sequence

wikipedia wrote:The Tribonacci numbers are like the Fibonacci numbers, but instead of starting with two predetermined terms, the sequence starts with three predetermined terms and each term afterwards is the sum of the preceding three terms.


wikipedia states that the sequence starts 0 0 1, but when I came across it, it started with 3 1's like this: 1 1 1 3 5 9 17 31, ...

Of course one could have it start with any three random numbers.:)

other I thought - Not!

you sent me reeling spinning wildly needing craving desiring you
filled me up tied me up swallowed me down cut me out cut me off like a moth to a flame I am drawn I am torn Sudoku

PS : Written in a moment of passion.

No
one
else
likes to write
like this, but I do
it makes me count the words I use and
not go on and on like a tap that won’t turn off or a stuck record
and then people might think Oh for goodness sakes just shut up why don’t you but be too polite to tell me to put a sock in it

Hi
I
Am pi
Sudoku
Is the thing i try
boxes, cages, colums and rows
day by day my appetite for puzzles grows and grows
I can do naked pairs and tripples, locked candidates and so on without much trouble.
But there is a ledgend of an even more evil, fearsome puzzle, i am told of the one which makes my blood boil and my brain bubble.
It can be found lurking in the sunday times, in the complex matrix of the news review section, under a heading that says 'brain teaser' 34 named as the 'superior sudoku'44. yes, that's right, it's a pappocom 'very hard'
