Twilight Hour

Sharing a lovely poem and poetry form, The Seox from Straight From My Heart –

Straight From My Heart

Setting sun;
Breath exuding orange hues.
Holds fort at horizon.
Meanwhile, silent dusk,
Spreads a black shroud
On Earth’s land.

The Seox (seox in Anglo Saxon means six) is a verse form written in 6 lines in keeping with its name. It was created by Ann Byrnes Smith.
The Seox is:
o   a poem in six lines, a hexastich.
o   syllabic, 3/7/6/5/4/3 syllables per lines.
o   unrhymed.
