Last weekend, April 6-9, was a virtual national jmm - Joint Mathematics Meetings -- and I attended a number of sessions that explored links between the focused languages of mathematics and poetry. Presenters that I was privileged to hear included Carol Dorf, Sarah Glaz, Gizem Karaali, and Dan May. Math guy Douglas Norton of Villanova University organized contributed-paper session on "Mathematics and the Arts" and also hosted a Friday-evening poetry reading -- an event in which much of the action was writing and sharing Fibs (6-line poems with syllable count being the first six Fibonacci numbers). Here are several samples:
A Fib? Or I
Not a fib. will bite you.
Put my heart in it. Nighttime is here, time
Let’s just see what comes bleeding out. to burn off all that hay I ate.
Zoom with friends metallic,
poetry alive majestic creature --
breathing words across many miles . . . not sure I want to meet one now
