~::~ Doomed Destiny ~::~

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.

~::~ Doomed Destiny ~::~

Mottled rags & flaky parched skin

I am all alone, none akin

Till a dawn that brightens my sky

Tears from weary bloodshot eyes, of diamante flints

I sat there waiting until doom

My life seems lost in wintry gloom

Wonder when snow cover shall lift

Waiting alone with dreams adrift, my pain entombed

Looking past a life that’s obscure

Although future appears unsure

Hoping against hope, tide shall change

Hang on though utterly deranged, destiny lures
