A Monoku is a type of poem which is made up of a single horizontal line. Traditionally considered 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.
Unlike 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.
I created a Page, Guide to Short Poetry Forms, inclusive of explanations and links to the original source. The link is located on my right sidebar under Pages.
