One of my poems that conforms to the Chi Psi Phi poetic form had been published by Poets online. Check on of Grass and Gravel Times for details and links or use the links to the right.

Although it was not planned this form may be a subtle parody of counting syllables and adherence to form while using it convey a deeper image that goes beyond human language and drills down to the spiral genetic code that we all carry within us. The vanishing point of Fibonacci Rectangles, origin point of the logarithmic spiral, has been referred to the Eye of God (Spirit, my addition) by mathematician Clifford A. Pickover and referred to by Livio is an image that is important to me because it strives for a perfection that eludes the inherent ambiguity of language that is both beauty and curse of finitude—a contrast of the physical and spiritual. It is an image that can be develop outside the mind anyone in a nearly perfect representation by using formulas and tools such as a computer program which is not the case with poetic imagery.

On the other hand, a poetic image may be interpreted and thence stimulate a visual artist to produce a piece of art to reflect the poet's image—it could go the other way too. Neither image is in competition with the other but can work together to clarify the message. Thus by incorporating both images into a poem, it spans the spectra from art to science, mind to spirit, human to divine.
