A trilemma

Oh
Phi
I too
Have loved you
For too long to note
That you are simply Pascal who
Bent over where
Fibonacci’d
Stood

I wrote this for dVerse Poets Pub’s Form for All series hosted by Tony Maud. Today he is all about triangles. What I have tried to convey here is that the Fibonacci sequence emerges along the diagonals of the Pascal’s triangle (see here). So what I have, in syllables, is 1-1-2-3-5-8 (Fibonacci) followed by 3-4-1 (diagonal in Pascal that adds to 8). A tad obscure? I am just as confused.Β
