A to Z Poetry: Florrete Poems

A florette poem consists of two or more 4-line stanzas with a rhyme scheme of a/a/b/a and a syllable count of 8/8/8/12. The 8th syllable of the 4th line rhymes with the third line while the 12th syllable of the 4th line rhymes with the first two lines.

The red truck begins to perspire
As the men fight the raging fire
Soaking everything in water
Only making it burn hotter, blaze shoots higher

The brave men continue to fight
But there is no relief in sight
Flowing lava reaches onward
Until the earth is etched and scored, by the moon's light

Picture with Red at California Adventure Park

On Sunday don’t be too gabby
While in the pews of the abbey
Lest the priest will give you a look
“Get yourselves back to the good book!” -Now he’s crabby!

Raise your voice loud in the choreus
Oh isn't my voice just gorgeous?!
At least it is not too shabby
Gabby angel of the abbey, angel flawless

Haiku Heights April A to Z: Fire

Fire blazes hotter
As the sun rises higher
Homeless dance for rain

Carpe Diem: Cancer (The crab)

Crabby sign
Waddles to water
No playing
