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)

Mirror! Mirror!

Pic by Gemma Wiseman ~ A mirror on the walkway at Dromana beach, Mornington Peninsula
Word Pool Wednesday #4 ~ mirror + reflection + soul

Mirror mirror reaching tall
Whose reflection beats them all?
asked the smugly smiling pathway.
Sadly, I must tell you, constant friend, it's always the sea's soul that beats me!
See my rust spots?

So much on your blog. I almost don't know where to look first. In the end, I stumbled on the eternal flame of the Holocaust Museum. Fabulous!

Wonderful! I really like "smugly smiling pathway" - I keep re-reading these words and it's just very musical!

Great stuff!
Take care

I agree with Kitty, "smugly smiling pathway" is so lyrical. I loved the way you took the photograph and incorporated that into your story. Beautifully written.

What an imaginative use of the words, and I love the photo too.
