Green Thoughts



Emptying my dishwasher, gazing through the window, a thought occurs beckoning me to follow its trail.

Lush and plush grass extends for miles, soon to disappear in a blanket of snow and slush.

Freeze this moment, green grass forever and perfect world – if only, impossible thought soon dead.

My line in the American Sentence attempt, part of the group poem

"Tempted to attempt my very first American sentence, curiosity conquers fear of mess-up."

#############################################
Tell me if I got this right, please, not sure if I have understood the rules for what constitutes an American Sentence, but attempt I did. Comments, criticisms most welcome.

I enjoyed these a lot - I have similar thoughts when I look out on the green grass, soon to be snow covered.

Snapshots of your life - I feel like I'm given a window into your world.

I like the way each thought carries through to the next one.
I think you've used the 'grass' prompt well. - not sure that the syllable's are right for an American Sentence - But love your poetry!

These are really good. I just learned about the American Sentence form from Becca at beccasbyline.blogspot.com - so I gave it a shot too.
