EZ-PZ Writes – September 24, 2022

“I’m so glad I live in a world where there are Octobers.”
― L. M. Montgomery

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.
