Shivering heather
awaken to misty moors,
a farmer stacks peat.

    Ohh haha if I hadn’t read one of your comments, I would have still think that by heather you were referring to a person. Silly me. Heather wasn’t capitalized, so, obviously, this piece wasn’t about a person. It’s about a plant. Lovely imagery. It makes me want to visit some day. . . To experience it physically rather than mentally.

    Congrats on the win!

    Perhaps 'awoken to misty moors'?
    Or, 'awoken by misty moors'?

      Perhaps this question needs to be posted in Luce's grammar threads haha!

      To me (no expert) awoken means that someone wakens you physically whereas awaken mean you wake by yourself but, honestly, I think the question arises from the word heather in this instance. As I said before heather grows in clumps, each with many flowers but it is never called heathers. I just don't know for sure though ????

      I've been thinking some more about this and have come up with this thought. If the word heather was replaced by cacti would awaken be acceptable?
