EzPz Writes – 3/26/2022*

thoughts mingle in spite of inadequacy of interpretation

A Monoku is a type of poem which is made up of a single horizontal line. Traditionally considered as a haiku writing, it is currently accepted as a variant of the haiku form of poetry. Monoku emerged as an independent style of poetry in the 1970s.

A haiku in a single horizontal line.

Unlike the Haiku which is made up of three outlines with a total of seventeen syllables, Monoku features a single line consisting of seventeen syllables or even fewer.

It contains a pause brought about by speech rhythm with slight or no punctuation. The first letter should not be capitalized – but instead written in lower case.

    1. I haven’t heard of many of them, Patricia. I liked this one because some of the shorter forms of poetry are more challenging.

  1. Ah, yes – I’ve done a few of these. Always good to work in a syllable counter when attempting 😉

    Nice summary of ‘today’. Perhaps a tad sad though.

      1. (Odd… perhaps only for the first reply to somethting… but not to one I just sent to you – and the replies still don’t show up in the WP Dash Comments… I really wish that a) they’d stop messing around and b) at least tell us when they do.)

      2. I agree, Jules. I believe when WP releases new versions the glitches happen. I read where the 6.0 version will becoming out sometime this year. Yikes! The last version made a mess out of my blog, Eclectic Brew. Anytime I used the quote feature in my posts, the font was huge and I had to go back and fix them. A few other bloggers complained of the same thing.

      3. Oy! I wish WP would make the changes choices. That way we could choose to be ‘upgraded’ or just leave things be – the way we are used to them.
