Carpe Diem’s Fibo-ku, an introduction to a new haiku form

From Carpe Diem site :

“Fibo-ku”. In that special haiku form, which I created last year (2014), you have to follow the Fibonacci sequence in your haiku, as follows:

1st line 1 syllable; 2nd line 1 syllable; 3rd line  2 syllables; 4th line 3 syllables and so on as is the Fibonacci sequence 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21, 34, 55, 89 and so on.

(My Try)

beats down
papyrus boat
sailing down nile
viewing the great pyramid
wishing to be in its cool shade
glad not to be entombed with the artifacts within
gazing at one of the seven wonders of the world while the nile breeze blows on my face

the warm air caressing my sunburned skin as I listen to the river’s song dancing against the side of the boat in gentle tones
