Heart of Darkness – Be Inspired Weekly Writing Challenge #23

This week’s poetry form for the Be Inspired Weekly Writing Challenge is a Monoku.

A Monoku is a senryu/haiku with a slight enigmatic/ambiguous flavour, written in its earlier Japanese form as a one liner. A ceaesura (pause) may be appropriate, dictated by sense or speech rhythm,and usually very little punctuation. Seveteen syllables or less. They may also be in a sequence form.

Here is my interpretation, I hope you enjoy.

Haunting and intriguing – I love it!

    Thank you. It reflects my mood! I wasn’t going to enter this week, because my thoughts are a little dark and then I realised I could work with it πŸ™‚

    My writing however, has suffered because of it. I’m not sure how much I can use from today. So I’ve given myself the night off and I’m going back to it with a fresh mind tomorrow.

    Thanks for commenting. I value your input.

Its great. It gets you right in there, allowing the reader to conjure up their own reality from it.

Short but powerful, great word choice πŸ™‚

Impressive! I so liked your attempt! Mel, I think the image compliments the mood described and I think you conveyed a more deep thought then what the words say. Thank you for your participation! Regards

Wonderful moment, I can almost hear the scratch and smell the sulphur. πŸ™‚
