American Sentences

Post date: Nov 30, 2016 10:57:6 PM

I recently had a book review, “Shadows of Moments,” published in Raven Chronicles Journal, and just added it to the Reviews page. My review is of Paul E. Nelson’s American Sentences, a collection of (mostly) seventeen-syllable one-line poems written daily over more than eleven years. These poems employ the American Sentences form derived from haiku by Allen Ginsberg. More haiku poets should be aware of American Sentences as an alternative to haiku. Meanwhile, I’ve also added a poem for Robert Major to the Memorial Haiku haiku page.
