yin yang in the sky 

it was a few days back when I was admiring the the work of nature . I was to write about the essence of Yin and Yang for a prompt in Carpe Diem Haikukai . Then suddenly like a sign showing me what it is all about , the sky has painted it so naturally . 

the reddish tint in the sky ( we called it , Nongjabi – rain eater ) , it seemed like , was trying to bring a balance by consuming the pregnant nimbus cloud . I felt awed and captured the image by my smartphone cam. 

Here it is :

Few years back , I was totally mad about the Divine Proportion . It was influenced by Dan Brown’s book ” The Da Vinci Code “. I started​ gropping more and more info about the Fibonacci series which is very simple to understand but has the unique and Divine Proportion , i.e. 0, 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21, 34, 55, 89, …( it is formed by starting with 0 and 1 and then adding any two consecutive terms to obtain the next one ,- 0 , 1 , 0+1=1 , 1+1=2 , 1+2=3 , 2+3= 5 and so on .

The interesting part is it is closely related to the the twenty-first letter of the Greek alphabet Φ, or φ (phi ) , which is also known by different names , Golden Ratio , Golden Mean etc.  Phi is the basis for the Golden Ratio, Section or Mean . The ratio, or proportion, determined by Phi (1.618 …) was known to the Greeks as the “dividing a line in the extreme and mean ratio” and to Renaissance artists as the “Divine Proportion”

The relationship of the Fibonacci sequence to the golden ratio is this: The ratio of each successive pair of numbers in the sequence approximates Phi (1.618. . .) , as 5 divided by 3 is 1.666…, and 8 divided by 5 is 1.60 and so on . The ratio of successive Fibonacci numbers converges on phi and After the 40th number in the sequence, the ratio is accurate to 15 decimal places.

1.618033988749895 . . 

The Golden Ratio can be seen and found in nature ; in shells ,petals of flowers ,branches of trees , seed heads , pine cones , spiral galaxies ,  body parts etc.

I am fascinated by this Divine Proportion and few years back wrote a poetry about it in fb.

its not much of a poetry , but I did expressed the influenced that this proportion had on me . ………!

here is my attempt for a haiku about geometric pattern .
