seasons beckon change predictions are spoken, yet thoughts remain silent

“Everyone thinks of changing the world, but no one thinks of changing himself.” ― Leo Tolstoy

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 lowercase.

        1. I think the ‘like’ button issue is another WordPress glitch, even though I see where you left a ‘like’. I am having issues with leaving comments again so the gremlins are having fun in the blogosphere. 😘
