Fibonacci: Mysterious Love





I
Love
The secret
Lanes of love.
Amble dreamily in the labyrinths,
But still found no way to the exit.
And no escape from the maze, to boot.
I tramp and make strides,
Long weary route,
Till conclusion.
Unknown,
  Unsolved...


***

This time I tried my hands on a Fibonacci or Fib. This is a form of poetry inspired by the Fibonacci series in mathematics, where, the first line contains 1 syllable, the second, 1 syllable (the sum of 0 and 1) the third, 2 syllables (sum of lines 1 and 2) the fourth, 3 syllables (sum of lines 2 and 3) the fifth, 5 syllables (sum of lines 3 and 4) the final line, 8 syllables (sum of lines 4 and 5) ending with a six line, 20 syllable poem all told. But, I here, used a word count instead of a syllable count. I am no expert in this. So, forgive me for any mistake and please give suggestions. Have you tried this form ever?

This poem is written for The Weekend Mini-Challenge by IGWRT. To know more about a Fib, visit this page.
