A Summer Couplet

Moonflowers are night-blooming dwellers,
perfect for night owls and late night strollers.

    When it comes to rhyming words my mind goes completely blank. Thanks to Robert's suggestion I have a pretty good poem. Russell I hope you had a grand Father's Day and thank you for stopping in and leaving a delightful comment. Warm Smiles, Connie

    You have a good idea for a couplet by describing moonflowers. The one questionable item you have is your word "ambler". The verb "amble" is defined as "to walk slowly and casually".. I have never heard of flowers walking; so I don't believe "ambler" is an appropriate word here. Perhaps "dwellers" would fit in your couplet better.
