Ez-Pz Writes – July 1, 2022

pathway to options somewhere, nowhere, anywhere take them or leave them

As a single footstep will not make a path on the earth, so a single thought will not make a pathway in the mind. To make a deep physical path, we walk again and again. To make a deep mental path, we must think over and over the kind of thoughts we wish to dominate our lives. – Henry David Thoreau

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.

    1. Yes, it can be read as you wish. For example, it can be read as a haiku –

      pathway to options
      somewhere, nowhere, anywhere
      take them or leave them

    1. No, but it is 17 syllables – here is more information.

      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.
