Question

The following verses each have an individual answer. They are all also related. What does each verse represent and what is the common theme?

1) Standing tall, old and proud

Symbolic of Hades' prickly shroud

2) The bright stand out and clearly show

A wind above the town below

3) Raised in Italy, brought to France

Now almost everywhere I dance

On pendants and patches

Uniforms and Flags

Artistically, I am thusly enhanced

4) Though not as wicked as death

I bare the same name

We do both end lives

Our tools are the same

5) Now that the sun has dipped below the horizon

There's an eatery of sorts, that I've got my eyes on

With a patio and chairs I can sit outside on

You've said clouds or stars is close, but maybe a weather vane.
No one has stated the obvious Reaper (Grim Reaper)
Star gazing picnic or something.

Only 4 is close. Here's a good hint for 4:

put this answer together with a previously given answer and you get the correct answer =)

For numbers 1 and 3, which I have determined solved, there should be a bit more clarification to them. This should spark some thoughts.

1 is Cypresses, usually found in a field or by a road

3 is lilies that are almost always in a vase

4 is a combination of two answers given, particularly the sickle and the reaper

is it a carnival theme. with ferris wheels and haunted houses and such?

Nope. It's not insect related or carnival related. Though I do think those are interesting topics. I really thought that last post I made was gonna give it away. Here's another hint:

though not similar answers both 2 and 5 have to do with darkness.

2) Ashes or embers from a fire, rising through the air

How about a seaper? Or a rickle? Reaper sickle? Sickle Reaper? Seaper Rickle?

:lol:

Phoenix (EDIT: just like this thread, keeps rising from the ashes)

#1 Cypresses - evergreen / immortality

#2 ashes - rising from the ashes

#3 Iris - spring and rebirth

#4 sickle/reaper/whatever - death

#5 something else ;)

I like these guesses very much: phoenix and winter solstice, but nonetheless they are not the theme.

Here is a big-time hint. I only recommend it if you've had enough of thinking about this one ;)

a google search on #1 would probably enlighten you about the darker riddles.
