What is unique/unusual about the following strange couplet?

a serene summer moon waxes over a wave-worn azure sea.

an orca moans an arcane verse as mermen caress a venomous sea anemone.

All the letters are "short" lowercase letters and don't extend below the line. E.g. no l's, t's, k's, g's, etc.

In addition to what @Ben said,

None of them drop below the line, no "p", no "q"

Also, a serene summer moon waxes over a wave-worn azure sea.

Three words each begin with the letters "a", "s", and "w" with an "o" as the only solo

an orca moans an arcane verse as mermen caress a venomous sea anemone.

a 6, v 2, m 2, s 1, o 1 The sum of the number of words that do not start with "a" equals the total number of words that start with "a"
