American Sentence — two cats series


These are my first attempts at writing American Sentences.  My favorite subjects are featured in a series of 3.

Two cats curl on two separate perches; not friends, yet not enemies.

One curls in leopard-skin bed; one curls on pink-printed fleece — both dreaming.

One has long stripes with white cotton bits; one’s short-haired, white, and has black spots.


Paul’s Poetry Playground introduces a poetry form, The American Sentence.  Please go to Paul’s post to see the guidelines for writing one.

      Did you see where Paul from Paul’s playground went looking in his favorite authors’ books for them? He found some good ones. To me they are just quotes, why give them a form name, but….

        Well it makes for an interesting form in my view, a bringing together of thoughts and melding a new sense of them. Could be quite powerful methinks.
