Families Only

An American Sentence for Carrie’s Sunday Muse BlogSpot. An American Sentence is exactly 17 syllables and is a complete sentence. It is different from a haiku in that there are no season references and is written in sentence form.

Families Only
“Who will feed the orphans when all the parents have gone?” ― Anthony T. Hincks Families

Families only are allowed; I am an orphan and cannot go.

    You captured the sad feel beautifully Toni. A wonderful and poignant American Sentence that brings one to tears.

    Goodness, this is so sad. All the brightness in the image makes the speaker’s pain more palpable.
