I thought that I did one of these here yesterday, but I can't find the post if I did or I guess I did it somewhere else.
Anyway, the Fibonacci is a number sequence in which two numbers are added together, and then thre previous two numbers are added together, and then so on:
0+1=1, 1+1=2, 1+2=3, 3+2=5, 2+5=7...and so on.
In the case of a Fibonacci poem, each line is the same number of syllables (or words) as the sums of the numbers in the sequence (though some, as I have, have replaced the first line, which I have read to be "zero" with another "one" so that the first two lines have one syllable/word). Below is a Fibonacci poem in which the syllables are counted in each line.

Is
A vast
Place that goes
On and on and on...
But God knows the location of
Every single star; after all, He put them there. :)
