Blue horses at sunset

Little Blue Horses, by Franz Marc, 1911

A sequence of Tilus poems:

Life goes on, love prevails

Twilight mare gathering,



Majestic steeds steady,



Community wisdom

in danger:


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.
