Love is not enough...American sentences..

Today at dversepoets.com Gay tells us about the 17 syllable sentence Allen Ginsberg invented,  a form of beat poetry...thought I'd give it a try with these sentences with images: 

Love was not enough to save them from catastrophe but came his hug




Babes in the woods, never off her mind, her first love and first born, princes

 She held herself prisoner for years because she could not heal his wounds


 A smorgasbord of art fills our plates before us, nourishing our souls



Not without hope misty mauve years passed inching into cold black midnight                                                                   


Perhaps all mistakes are blessings disguised as a wolf in sheep's clothing

  4. I think we could call these World Sentences - very topical, very soulful, very insightful. That is what they should be - you have managed in all of these to write a complete poem. Many I've read seemed like gateways to more; but these manage a beginning, middle and end in 17 syllables. I salute you - these are very fine.

  14. I so love these - especially the one about princes - and the blessings disguised as mistakes, which is so often the case.
