on the horizon

Sunset painting velvety sky at nighttide
tones of red clouds shimmering above mountains
trace the downward spiral of wafting sunset 
replaced with darkness

    Very beautiful writing. I'm somewhat familiar with Sappho. I enjoyed the fragmented yet related nature of the writing. You've captured the essence of her poetry... Jack

    thank you Peter...it was my first attempt at a Sapphic stanza...it was a challenge :)

    I forgot how the last line should be done. But it looks like you got the first ones metered correctly. I found this type of stanza very challenging! Yours is beautiful.

    Thanks Andrea...i thought it to be a real challenge too and had several different definitions of the form as well as several sample poems open as i wrote it and it still took me weeks to finish it..
