North American Sentence

Since Allen Ginsberg coined the phrase for his 17 syllable sentences and I started to write them as well each day two years ago, I have been in search of a better name. I am now writing 12 syllable sentences that capture and moment or a thought in my day, but have still not come up with a better name for these artistic brief word pictures. So for now "Canadian Sentences" have morphed into American/Canadian Sentences and into "North American Sentences", although they have nothing related specifically to geography except the landscape of the mind. So for now "North American Sentences" it is.

"Gardens grow regardless of a presence or a distracted lack of time."

I suggest you call them "Sublime Sentences." It has a lovely ring, plus, mathematically, twelve is a "sublime number" - a number that has a perfect number of divisors, and the sum of its divisors is also a perfect number.
