a rainbow in words- 5th

Summer Daze

purple haze – flowers bright
summer days – warm night
Bees Buzz – nectar sweet
Perfumed air – a delight

Grass long – green height
Mozzies buzz – summer blight
Flowers bob – warm breeze
Children laugh – all’s right

Chueh-chu Poems

The chueh-chu is a Chinese poetic form that Robin Skelton’s The Shapes of Our Singing claims translates to mean “sonnet cut short.” As such, it does act a bit like an eight-line sonnet broken into two quatrains.

Here are three possible rhyme schemes suggested by Skelton:

  • aaba/cada
  • abcb/dbeb
  • aaba/aaca
