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!!!
