Poetry – the point where ekphrasis and fibonacci collide!

18 Jul

fibonacci, artist: Rick Mobbs

of light,
the spiral,
the hand of a child,
numbers spin and reveal a world.

Ekphrasis is a type of poetry wherein the author describes another work of art — think Keats’ Ode to a Grecian Urn.  The poem I wrote is a Fib poem which was inspired by the subject matter of the poem.  Thank you to Rick Mobbs for sharing his artwork as inspiration.

    I also like how the layout of the written poem mirrors the layout of the image. Very cool.
