Wonderful FIBONACCI Poems

What is Fibonacci poetry?
Fibonacci poetry is a form based on the Fibonacci number sequence.The Fibonacci sequence begins with either zero or one, followed by one, and proceeds based on the rule that each number called a Fibonacci number is equal to the sum of the preceding two numbers. The sequence begins like this:

1 + 0 = 1
1 + 1 = 2
2 + 1 = 3
3 + 2 = 5
5 + 3 = 8
8 + 5 = 13
13 + 8 = 21
and so on.

Fibonacci poems can be written in two ways:
1) in numbers of syllables (syllable-based )or
2) in numbers of words(word-count-based).

Most people write their poems so that each line contains the number of words of its place in the sequence, and some use the sequence to determine the number of syllables in each line. Both methods follow a growth pattern giving the poem a wonderful look.

Things are really getting interesting.

One such poems is :

a Fib?
A poem
Syllables are arranged in lines
according to Fibonacci's sequence of numbers:
One, one, two, three, five, eight, thirteen, twenty-one, thirty-four, fifty-five and so on

Why not me? I tried to write the Fibonacci poem.I wrote it as word-count based poem. Read it .Hope you people will be entertained.

And them
All of us
Are all brought up together
But you are important to me than them

Why ?
Only you
Can you guess?
Oh it is very simple
"You are my only sister", said her brother
