Twilight Hour

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   unrhymed.

Born in the year 1968, my childhood was spent amidst the beautiful scenic landscape of a small town in India, Ranchi. Though an engineer by qualification, reading, writing and cooking are my passions. Another thing that I am passionate about is my country, India. As they say, a lifetime is probably not enough to explore the whole of India. Currently based in Kolkata, I can be reached at gdutta17@gmail.com.

    1. Am thrilled to know that you loved my write. Came across this poetic form on a post a week back, on Facebook. It had skipped my mind after that but when I saw your prompt, it came back and II decided to try and write using this style. Found the poetic form quite interesting- total syllable count is slightly lesser than a tanka but there is a bit more flexibility, in my opinion, because of one additional line compared to a tanka. This is a layman’s interpretation; you would be a better judge of course. 😊
