Blue horses at sunset

Marc-little_blue_horses
Little Blue Horses, by Franz Marc, 1911

A sequence of Tilus poems:

Life goes on, love prevails

as sunsets

end.

Twilight mare gathering,

survival

flow.

Majestic steeds steady,

unafraid,

strong.

Community wisdom

in danger:

peace.

Jane Dougherty offers Franz Marc’s Little Blue Horses painting and proposes the Tilus for this week’s challenge.  The Tilus is an interesting form with only 10 syllables (less than a 3-5-3 haiku) and content guidelines described in the link above.
