(M) Monostich

MP900201712A monostich is a one-line stanza or poem. When it is a single poem, it can be a fragment, definition, image, etc. But it must be able to stand alone.

A smile always blooms when morning comes

    • Thanks for commenting! The two phrases you mention are more like idioms, than monostich. A monostich is a stanza of poetry, whereas idioms are an expression of sorts, like “kick the bucket”, that can’t be understood unless used together.
