My First Chaiku Poem

What are Haiku and Chaiku Poems?
Honestly I just heard those two kinds of poems several weeks ago at an online writing community where I have joint. They looked interesting to me. I prefered to learn Chaiku than Haiku because Chaiku is much easier than Haiku.

What is Haiku Poem?

According to Wikipedia:

What is Chaiku Poem?

Chaiku is a neologism derived from the first two letters of Chinese and the last four of HAIKU. It refers to the notion that Chinese poetic meter can play the same role as the meter of haiku in the composition of verse in English. Chaiku consists of four lines, each containing four syllables, that is to say either four words of one syllable, or four syllables regardless of number of words. Chaiku may consist of one or more quatrains. Rhyme is permitted but not required.

After I read those explanations, I could not wait to start writing Chaiku Poem. Below is my first Chaiku Poem that I have edited several times and got final review from an expert member.

His review: You've done a great job of tweaking your chaiku to conform to the required four-syllables-per-line pattern. There is pleasant alliteration, particularly in the first and second quatrains, an added bonus. The rhythm is agreeable throughout.

And below is my first Chaiku, titled "SUMMER FUN" (Final editing), written on July 4th with final edited on July 27th, 2009. Enjoy!!!

Summer Fun

When sun shines hot
head burns like fire
warm body sweats
brownie baked skin

There people hate
many don’t like
stay inside cool
no hot, no sweat

But let us see
other people
under the sun
swim and enjoy

But let us see
other people
grill yummy foods
sweet tasty corns

But let us see
fun giggled kids
in swimming suits
splash in water


Now I have collected my own three Chaiku Poems. I want to collect at least ten Chaiku Poems to complete my another poem anthology.


What am I doing right now?
