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)

To the genie in the bottle...

Microfiction Monday #39 ~ where a picture paints 140 characters, or even fewer. Susan says:
Photos will be from my own archives; illustrations are from Dover Publications' free clipart sample newsletter.

Bottle! Bottle!
In my hand
Come out genie
If you can!
Foam my hair
Like frothy, creamy milk
Create my hair as soft as gleaming silk
(140 characters)

Hosted by Susan (Ireland) @ Stony River

This is fun.

I have visited you before and left a comment, now I can't find it. You have so much here that it is difficult for me to find my way through.

Thank you for visiting my blog.


Suz said...

Now that was clever

Sounds as if she is found her Genie in a Bottle.

Sylvia K said...

Oh, great one, Gemma! And I knew yours would be great! It is fun, isn't it! Enjoy!


Peggy said...

Do you have another bottle with a genie in it. Mine didn't have one!
Really creative, loved it.

Pat said...

Wonderful poem in 140 characters! Very clever.

Clearly because she's worth it. Gone for vive la différence for the weekend today. Click here to read my nano story.

I really enjoyed your poem. Could be a song as well!

Now the mistress wants her hair done. Oh, the thankless life of a genie.

Oooo I want a bottle :) Love it. Have a great week ahead :)

We expect so much from a shampoo don't we! LOL

MorningAJ said...

I REALLY like that. I just hope he grants more than three wishes or there are going to be a lot of times when my hair looks awful!

Karen S said...

Love this -- don't we all wish for that genie in the bottle?

jabblog said...

One bottle can do so much in the right (genie's) hands!

Janel said...

I could use a hair genie right now! The humidity is really doing a number on mine.

Mama Badger said...

A poem, none the less! Her genie isn't lady Clairol, is it?

hope said...

Bet she gets a better result than depending on some genie in a lamp. :)

Michele J said...

Oh I like it! If that genie ever does come out and decides to silken hairs, please send him out to my home, I would be glad to accept him with open arms! =)
