Tropical Fruit Salad



Who’s there?

That cool breeze

Welcome to the rain

Mangoes, paw-paws, watermelons

The rainy season brings them all to our fruit salad

I wrote my first Fib poem with my Teach Write writing party. Here’s part of the instruction we used to create our poems. “Fib poems are based on the mathematical Fibonacci sequence: 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8… The poem is written in syllables based on this sequence.”

We were to write our poems about spring, since there are only two seasons where I am , we decided I write about change, and as the rainy season starts in April, I wrote about that.

  1. This is excellent, you used the structure but still made a coherent thread of ideas. R’s fave in Ghana was Paw-Paw! Also really great tie to math in poetry. 🙂
