Contest Description

What to Submit? (PLEASE READ!)

Impress me with a heavenly monoku.  Really give your words some thought.  Dive into juxtaposition, that twist in your monoku.  Not just an appearance of a heavenly one, not just a name...make your monoku interesting...thoughtful!  


A single line - do not punctuate except a simple dash (-) to highlight your twist if need be.  No, I am not a monoku expert but I am a reader who delights in brief poems that say much in their delivery.  17 Syllables or less


Crystal Still Jesus

crystal still Jesus on a snowy cloud - his body on horseback


Title = Crystal Still Jesus (please do not put title in the body of the poem)

Monoku = crystal still Jesus on a snowy cloud - his body on horseback

in Christianity, Jesus is "the head" and the Christians are "the body" and are also known as "The Bride of Christ" 

So this monoku has a juxtaposition where you can visualize Jesus on horseback but also His followers with Him. So you see how it says more. 

*Please, do not bold the monoku. If you do, I will not take points off, I just find it unnecessary. 

Date - 1/24/2019
