Solstice




We walk with long shadows trailing
As sun sets with hues unveiling

Orange and red weaves with soft blue
We guzzle summer's heady brew

Red roses carpet, scent of green
Misting our brows with sweaty sheen

On the horizon, half-moon rises
Silvering lips stained by spices

  4. I love picturing the sun with this kind of a hair weave:

    "Orange and red weaves with soft blue" :)

    The last couplet is gorgeous.

  5. Your solstice couplets are so calm and soothing, Grace. I especially love:
    Orange and red weaves with soft blue
    We guzzle summer's heady brew'
    and
    'On the horizon, half-moon rises
    Silvering lips stained by spices'

    The coming of Summer can perhaps trigger off a round of dining to ward off the heat of day!

  13. I love the evening walks you can do in summer... but very few moons are showing on the bright skies of Sweden.

  15. I got a really good feel of what couplets are from this Grace. Usually, I hear that word and think 'days of old' 😊
