Beauty has been plucked
from the eye of the beholder
and lies in mathematical formulae
proposed by
Fibonacci

The face carefully measured
Length and width
One divided by the other
1:1.62
The Golden ratio

The face in three acts
Hairline to eyes
Eyes to nose
Nose to chin
A trinity of equal numbers

Nature’s symmetry presented
Length of ear and length of nose
The same
Width of eye and distance between
The same

Luck would have it
Most faces
match the measurements
and for those that don’t
the right hairstyle disguises imperfections

Fibonacci has uncovered
the fingerprint of
the Maker
God sings creation into being
ofttimes flaunting the formulae

Beauty is never in
the eye of the beholder
or in the mathematics
of Fibonacci
but in the design of God

He looks
not for a Golden Ratio
but for a tender heart
God weighs the heart of Fibonacci
and He weighs the heart of me




Author's Note - Fibonacci, (Leonardo Pisano Bigollo) (c. 1170 – c. 1250) was an Italian mathematician. He investigated number patterns in nature.

Wonderfully written! Interesting to read, holds much to ponder in its lines. How can anyone believe in the “Big Bang”...that any "accident" could set in place the perfect symmetry maintained in nature, planets, the universe needed to support life? Absolutely the fingerprint of God is everywhere! Terrific job on this!

This I love - especially after an artist friend tried to encourage me to try drawing using just these facts. Wasted effort. Words, on the other hand ... And you have used the words to great effect. God bless you.

A wonderful read. Yes, we should all be defined by the beauty in our heart, for so many beautiful people on the outside are stone cold empty on the inside.

This is excellent writing!

Let's see here... another Fibonacci series... 0,1,1,2,3,5,8,13,21... Right?? :D Anyway, I liked this. And I like how you brought it together at the end.

Very nicely done...loved the ending

This is a very thoughtful, insightful piece, and I very much enjoyed reading it! I love the line: "God sings creation into being
ofttimes flaunting the formulae." How true that is! And the last two stanzas are especially beautiful! Great job!

O so interesting and unique! Suburb way to use the topic.

Wow this is an intense piece. At first I was afraid it might be over my head, that I might be missing something, but the more I read the louder I could her God's voice in your words. Magnificent!

I thought this would be about metric conversions, since a mile is 1.62 kilometres, but you took me in a totally different direction (and nowhere near as far!) I love how you have built this entry around solid research, without trying to overwhelm us with the weight of your research. Excellent writing.

Congratulations on ranking 14 in Masters and 20 overall!
