OLWG#156- Micro Poetry

This piece was written for OLWG#156



in my mind there’s a place I am often found there thoughts run like water

#####

i ne’er choose the voices I hear but instructions they run like water


The prompts were:

  1. run like water
  2. barroom fixture
  3. Gowers Avenue

I recently discovered and began following yassy66 who lured me in by mentioning Monoku. Research revealed that this is a poetic form similar to haiku, but written on a single line (like an American Sentence). Seventeen syllables, or less, with a pause and no punctuation. Being a fan of short form I had to try my hand. I used the same OLWG prompt twice. Any readers who are familiar with Monoku and who are so inclined are welcome to tell me what I’ve done wrong. Constructive criticism is welcome and appreciated.
