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)

Rocking Feathered Souls

Pic by Gemma Wiseman ~ Before morning light is fully awake, birds rest on small boats offshore from Rosebud beach, Mornington Peninsula
3WW #CXLVII ~ cradle + perfect + snare

Until morning breaks
Birds snare the perfect cradle
Water lullaby

Another beautiful haiku and great photo. The birds seem to be entertaining themselves quite well. Have a great night.

Made for each other.
The question that haunts me is that whether that photo triggered that thought or the haiku led to the photo.
Anyways m in both ways.
