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.

Piku – pi-ku (or πœ‹-ku) is a poem with syllable structure 3-1-4. Note that the pi-ku does not necessarily have to be math-related.

  1. The water waste here in Las Vegas makes me mad. People still have grass lawns, and the darn golf courses gobble water up at a ridiculous pace.

    • People waste way too much water, John. They take it for granted.

      • Yes, and that’s sooo bad! Our water source, Lake Mead is horribly low!

      • Yes, I’ve read about that. Very unsettling.

      • I follow the legal entity on Instagram that is in charge of the boat ramps, they must continually move the docks and anything else associated with the ramp, down. Standing on the ramp, in some places you can see where the waterline should be, and that you would be 100 feet underwater if the lake were at full pond. Damn scary. Why can’t humans make the price of desalinating ocean water drop significantly!

  2. Water waste makes me mad too

  3. I didn’t think you had much left over there? At least over California-way?

    • Yes, I’ve read where California has multiple water issues.

      • This time I was asked to give my e-mail. Never been asked in years! Could it possibly have something to do with you moving about? Let us see what happens next?

      • No, I could still not leave a ‘like’! I guess I will have to call myself ‘The shadow’ from now? πŸ™‚

  4. Two wonderful, linking poems…so much said in so few words. πŸ‘πŸ‘

  5. Lovely poems about a most precious resource, Eugi!

  6. Lovely poems centred around a very important theme. It breaks my heart too, to see people wasting water.

  7. We are senselessly still wasting this important resource. Great message Eugenia. Thanks for joining in

  8. Beautifully done, Eugi

  9. such good reminders and beautifully strung of our life sustaining water… scarce Eugi 😒

  10. Made me smile <3

  11. At last we are beginning to realise that water is not an infnite resorse. A perfect take on the prompt, well done.

    Here’s mine!

  16. Pessimist sees the glass half empty
    Opptimist sees it half full
    The Engineer drinks the water then refills the glass… πŸ™‚

    We do need to be more repectful of the limited water we have.
