freckled sun (a raay)

Spread your wings and fly
high until you can
scan the sun’s freckles
sparkle beyond its
bits of flaws and faults.

R is for Raay.
The Raay or Rai is a forerunner of the Kloang and has the same unique tonal pattern. It is a chained verse, written with the end syllable of L1 rhymed with the beginning syllable of L2. It was often used to record laws and chronicle events in verse. The elements of the Raay are
  1. stanzaic, written in a series of couplets.
  2. syllabic, 5 syllables per line.

  1. I appreciate (and enjoy) the enjambed rhyme you’ve crafted here. I think “freckles sparkled” is my favorite. Sister, you have become quite the celebrator of words!
