Distant noise, closer confusion
Earth eruption, grand illusion
Falling quickly, so senselessly
Entering darkness painfully, no occlusion
Awaiting war, expected birth
Integrity slips, lose all worth
Flowers fall, all masquerading
Tossed aside in sham parading, creating dearth
Expectant saviour, lovely face
Heavenly light, another place
Flaming hellfire, rising tide
Battlefield earth intensified, toxic embrace
Ocean uproar, blinding lightening
Open doorway, nothing binding
Entering freely, freely freed
With loving sacrificial deed, angels singing
Note: the Florette was created by Jan Turner and consists of two or more stanzas for either of the two versions, the first consisting of quatrain stanzas with a rhyme scheme of a a b a, with an interlaced rhyme in line four, where syllable eight shares the “b” rhyme.

You’re getting so good at writing poem forms. Well done, Jonathan!
Oh, thank you so much, Miriam! Yes, forms present an excellent challenge and they’re fun, too!
I know, Jonathan. Are they conventional forms or newly created?
I believe they are conventional forms, but some may be rather recent, historically. I get them from poetscollective.org under their resources tab. You’d be surprised by just how many wonderful forms there are!
It’s good to know, Jonathan! I searched for poetry form from another website also but haven’t tried all of them!
