The American Sammie

For Sunday Scribblings, Sweet Talking Guy wrote an American Sandwich – three American Sentences written together to tell a story.
An American Sentence is a haiku-length poem created by Allen Ginsburg. He suggested they be limited to 17 syllables, like haiku in Japanese and like the Heart Sutra in Buddhism.
So, an American Sandwich.

He drops to his knees in the soft green grass of spring, eager and willing. Sunset coats everything with a lush orange; his heart sings as tears tumble.
Devotion, motivation was questioned; acceptance unlocked his soul.
