NaPoWriMo : Day 7 (Not a Piece of Cake or Pi)

NaPoWriMo

Poetry Prompt:  Of the poetic forms that are based on syllable counts, probably the most well-known – to English speakers, at least – is the Japanese form called the haiku. But there are many other syllable-based forms. Today, I’d like to challenge you to pick from two of them – the shadorma, and the Fib.

The Fib has a syllable count based off the Fibonacci sequence of 1/1/2/3/5/8
