Three White Feathers

Poefusion has a new prompt: Title Tuesdays! I am coming in a day late, but I wrote something for it. This week’s title was “Three Feathers Fall A Heart”. I wrote a chain of Fibs for this prompt.

Don’t know what a Fib is? According to Wikipedia, it is a “an experimental Western poetry form, bearing similarities to haiku, but based on the Fibonacci sequence”. It is a six-line form with twenty syllables total – the syllable breakdown is 1/1/2/3/5/8. For more info heck out Wikipedia’s entry, this article, and the blog of Gregory K. Pincus.


fall to earth
shed by an angel
on his way to face his judgment

now breaks
she’ll never
see his face again
humans and angels just don’t mix

was love
but he knew the price
when he kissed her lips
when he touched her warm, fragrant skin

dark pit
is his home
all she has left are
memories and three white feathers

    Love the use of a Fib chain. Makes the “simple” form build into something bigger….

  7. Thank you, Cynthia and Gregory.
