AUSTRALIA ~ The Antipodes

AUSTRALIA ~ The Antipodes
I love a sunburnt country / A land of sweeping plains / Of ragged mountain ranges / Of droughts and flooding rains / I love her far horizons / I love her jewel-sea / Her beauty and her terror / The wide brown land for me / ~ Dorothea Mackellar (1885-1968)

Eternity Rings

Pic by Gemma Wiseman ~ My perpetual calendar ~ the circles of time
One Single Impression #53 ~ Circles
Happy first anniversary OSI!


Seasonal orbits
Nature's eternity rings
Aging gracefully
Circles of old time
Spiralling cycles of life
Message in the round

Dear Gemma--
I've never seen a calendar like that either--it's beautiful. Looks almost Buddhist or eastern in flavor.

Beautiful poems as well--thank you for the reminder of the circularity of it all--

Loved this post, thanks.

I will never view eternity rings in quite the same way again.
