    Rainis Sonnet

    Explore the Craft of Writing Poetry The Sonnet Sonnet Comparison Chart Latvian Verse Rainis Sonnet is a short meditation. Whether or not it is a true sonnet is up for debate. It is a lyrical meditation with a turn or volta, however it is shorter than the usual quatorzain of the sonnet. It is named for the Latvian philosopher and poet Janis Rainis (1868-1929) The elements of the Rainis Sonnet are: written in 9 lines made up of a quatrain, followed by a tercet ending with a couplet. metered, primarily iambic pentameter. rhymed, turned on only 3 rhymes. Rhyme scheme abab (cbc or cac) and (aa or bb or cc). written with the epiphany arriving in the tercet. Fire at the Core by Judi Van Gorder Religion can become a boring chore, a habit played back over many times. The righteous flame is snuffed beneath the score becoming mindless rote like nursery rhymes We struggle to renew the fire of faith and long to feel the thrill when hearing chimes that bid the faithful sing at Easter rathe. I will keep knocking on my Father's door convinced that truth and love dwell at the core. Yacht Club, Sunday Night by T├Ánis Veenpere Now, in the muffled thump-thud-thump of after, a couple of Coasties, drinking, bump and grind; now, somewhere in a corner, nervous laughter hints at her words, which he was disinclined to listen to, to parse, or understand. While digging out a pearl, he soiled that oyster -- it's something that just happened, wasn't planned -- and now, it's getting harder to withstand not touching her; he's jealous of her hand.
