Figure 1: Radoslav Rochallyi, Sample according to the number of syllables

About this poem

Rochallyi used an experimental poetic form of the golden ratio around 2012.[36] It follows a strict structure based on the golden number 1.618033 in syllables. Typically represented in the form of six lines, 1/6/1/8 / (0) / 3/3 - with so many words or syllables on the line that correspond to the golden number. The only limitation of poetry according to the golden number is the number of words or syllables followed by the sequence number 1.618033. The Greek letter Phi represents the golden ratio. Its value is 1.618034. In Golden Divine collection (2015), he tried to link poetry with Fi (φ) and hence the number 1,618034 in non-graphical form and with a golden section in its graphic form.[37] Schmidt argues that his Golden Divine is a prototype of formal fundamentalism in poetry, employing a restriction according to the Greek letter phi.[38] The only limitation of "Golden Ratio Poetry" is that the number of words or syllables follows the sequence of digits in 1.618034.
