Wild Ride

Off the sidelines, wile ride, run and hide

But life won’t wait, boy, so take the bait

Of pumping adrenaline you can’t escape

Before we crash and burn in torn pages

Of all the past ages of history, our story,

An unexpected tale of historic confusion

With little expectation of any redemption

Yet will your love surely save our souls

From the hounds of hell on this wild ride

As we duck and hide and abide together

In some long lost forever land at hand

But still unseen on this wild ride of life

Night Flowers of the Child

Bring me flowers of night dear child of light

In your flight of fancy so high, so wild,

Never meek nor mild in this waking dream

When we now possess only what is best

In youth taking wing to bring down a star

From afar off in heaven while we sing,

And smiles come from the flowers you bring

Lost Innocence Regained

Writhing in agony to find again lost innocence

In the real presence of peace without penance

Or any pretence of greatness without humility

Yet always asking when will it all finally close

And open to something beautifully brand new

In which this tired old soul can live once again

Within the magnificence of an eternal youth

No longer bounded by limits of space and time

But simply free to be divinely innocent forever

Shoulder Which Upon to Cry

Angel eyes, hide no lies

Give me your shoulder which upon to cry

Loosen the noose around my heart

For you to love for me to play a better part

Wash away all pain of fear with my tears

Soak your cloak in my flood

Blood of my soul, you’re in control

So offer your shoulder which upon to cry

Angel eyes, hiding no lies

Out From Confusion: A Florette

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.

Syllabic:           8/8/8/12

Meter:               Iambic

A Prison Tableau

Here in my prison

I await freedom

By which I’m driven

Back to my Eden

That I’ve been given

As promised beacon

  • rhyme at the discretion of the poet.
  • written describing a single image.
  • written with a title that includes the word “tableau”.
