EZ-PZ Writes #38

to sing to the moon but silently as stars sleep the night gently yawns

American Sentence: Invented by Allen Ginsberg. – Poets Collective

An American haiku variation. 17 syllables written in a sentence. Any topic –

So, the qualities of such a sentence? Like most other good poetry it should be Imagistic, with that gap of meaning between the writer and the reader; ie: phenomenology. Some kind of juxtaposition helps create a tension.

  1. This American sentence is a beautiful blend of imagery and meaning. The use of the American haiku variation adds a unique twist to the traditional haiku form, and the juxtaposition of singing to the moon while stars sleep creates a tension that draws the reader in. A truly powerful and evocative piece of poetry.
