Peat-whisky dreams


Evening finds ascension
on a Red Grouse wing;
the brilliant copper sky 
fades to twilight beam.
 
 
It wafts the weathered flora
of a season’s ending term,
as young Skylarks soundly sleep
in the nearby bracken fern.
 
 
The purple hue glints playfully
on a steep highland muir,
with lovers lying blithesome 
on the fragrant heather floor,
 
 
their drunk love on crescendo
with a piper's distant drone;
sharing peat-whisky dreams
amid the summer’s final gloam.

    Thank you Giorgio. It's actually Scottish, not Irish. A common theme in my work as my parents are Scots as well as my husband.

    I find it difficult to write a poem layered with such fancy wording, but you seem to do it well. I agree with previous commentors, it has a real nice fantasy ring to it.

    Perfectly writen! No over use of colors and rhyming that would satisfy any poet.

    Yes, I think it might fit that theme of fantasy. Because of the way you call it dreams!!!

    E.R.Burroughs I'm a big fan too, I taught my son to love reading with The Martian chronicles! This seems so Scotland or Ireland have you seen peat cut? the moors..etc? Just lovely Thvia [hey did you realize John Carter was also the name of the hero in the Terminator? I JUST got that..?!] Light & Love
