This one, sent to me by my mother, is Fibonacci Poems, using the number theory sequence of sums (adding the previous two numbers to get the next one: 0, 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21, 34, 55, ad infinitum) as the syllable counter. The first line, technically, is a silent one....
Standard "Fibs" stop at line six (seven, technically) and go like this:
II think the silent line deserves a notation: [breath] [silence] [sigh], etc. could add a bit of expressive depth

To her blogger haiku writer
[sigh]The originator is a writer of all kinds of poetry, actually, but it's exciting to get noticed.
Are worth studying
While the syllabus goes unread?
Best headline he's gotten so far was in German: "Haiku are yesterday; fibs are today"
I think the cascading structure of the fib has real potential, if used carefully. But the haiku ain't going anywhere.
Sonnets still exist[all poetry in this post is original]
Limericks still have some life
Haiku will survive
