American sentences are haiku-length poems that US author Allen Ginsberg suggested be limited to 17 syllables, like haiku in Japanese. While Japanese haiku typically contains a seasonal reference, and a cutting word (a word that briefly cuts the stream of thought, or one that ends the verse with a heightened sense of closure), English haiku and American sentences often deal with any subject matter and do not always contain a cutting word. My American Sentences often contain references to nature as that is one of my favorite subjects.
Spring comes in increments just big enough to see with the naked eye.
Spring makes its own time.
It weaves the dark of winter
into light. Enough.
