    Ruben re yr question.Essentially the monoku returns the haiku to its original presentational practice whereas the crystalline the key ingredient is the euphony of the verse ,in two lines of 8 & 9 syllables(or 9 & 8).It can be rhymed(as many of mine are) and my variation is also to link them in a sequence where they have some common theme.They must be 17 syllables,can be untitled or not.Denis Garrison authored this form.Thanks for your interest Ruben.Rgds Brian

    You have done a wonderful job capturing real friendship in this Monoku, and thank you for your comments on my new post. The voice of innocence speaking before the rainbow illusions were shattered. ~Tru~

    Ruben,..I don't know the form as of yet,...but how exciting this poem is and all of its truth in such a concise form !!!! TY for this wisdom ! james

    Nicely said Ruben. I'm too conservative to be a Democrat and too liberal to be a Republican. I vote my heart, friend. The poem was frustration with a judicial system that punishes the victims. As a Republican, I've voted for Kerry and Obama in the last 2 elections. God Bless. Vince

    straight to the point. Main message. It's cool!

    You can say that again, Ruben! In "Love Story" the woman tells her husband that, "Love means never having to say you're sorry." After reading your great poem, I think I understand the meaning of this now. Love, Carolyn
