Daylight wanes as moon rises, mother offers her child last crumb of bread
This is written in the style of “American Sentences”; a poetic form developed by Allen Ginsberg in the mid-1980′s as a response to the haiku. The challenge is to use two images and put them in juxtaposition in order to create a sort of tension. American Sentences is seventeen syllables across the page.
To me, this is similar to a mindful moment or small stone.
