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 blythesome 
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.

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!!!
