Verbogeometry is a form of art which is interested in creating an aesthetic experience with poetic structures of mathematical / verbal metaphors. I am introducing Verbogeometry as a subset of a small movement of mathematical poetry occurring globally but mostly in America and Finland. This particular mathematical poetry movement has some connections to the visual poetry movement in the English speaking world. This paper on Verbogeometry is a primer and also an ongoing investigation.
