This is the first time I have written a Florette. As a part of A to Z Challenge, I was going to write a free verse but then I thought – why not try something new.


Fair Maiden

Wind played with her black sun burnt hair
the ruthless world was never fair
among odds she proudly stood tall
waiting for her to fall, they all, scornfully stare

Yet, with carefree smile she walks on
never to retire withdrawn
alone she storms towards new start
no longer was her gentle heart, fate’s little pawn




The Florette, created by Jan Turner, consists of two or more 4-line stanzas.

Rhyme scheme: a,a,b,a
Meter: 8,8,8,12
Fourth line requirement of internal (b) rhyme scheme, on syllable 8.

Like the outgrowing of a small flower, the forth line of each stanza is longer, and enwraps the previous lines. Line #4 requires an internal rhyme scheme that rhymes the eighth syllable with the end of line #3, and continues to add on four more syllables than the other lines so that the fourth line ends rhyming with lines #1 and #2.
