What a brilliant monoku
Thank you Vidya
Music is wonderful for that.
What is a MONOKU?
A monoku is a one line haiku.
Just as papagreen aka John said, a monoku is a haiku written as one line, and is the haikai version of a monostich.
For more details check out Area 17 "Travelling the single line of haiku – one line haiku / monoku / monostich" by Alan Summers.
They are not always easy as they appear, Madhuri's has more craft to it than meets the eye! :-)
Call of the Page
Well done, Madhuri!
Madhuri, Lovely! Thank you! Marilyn
Great use of the verb. Sound (music) and scents are great for bringing back something from the recess of our former life (childhood).
Beautifully crafted monoku (one line haiku).
