The Golden Ratio

Mathematics as seen in nature

A snail exhibits the Golden Ratio in its spiral
Schneckens at the coffee shop we eat like they're viral

Galactic arms and hurricanes, may bend to this fraction
Hubble & satellite photos evoke an awe reaction

Here we see another truth of the natural world
The simple math of how some things are curled

And too, the human face, itself a pleasing form
Is said to be constructed to this Fibonacci norm

So, with eyes wide, continue to look for phi
You know, it may be in lots of things we see
