I am once again combining prompts.  The challenge at d’Verse Poets was to write a Tilus  poem, the new form created by Kelvin S-M. It has one two-line stanza with 6 and 3 syllables.  The second stanza is one, one syllable line.  The subject of the poem should reflect nature. At Real Toads, we were to use the Black Forest as our inspiration.

twilight calls



Or we could just go fun…
