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)

I Know I Stand in Line...

Pic by Gemma Wiseman ~ Figurines lined up for sale at Tyabb, Mornington Peninsula
Carry on Tuesday #68 ~ This week our prompt is
the first words of Frank and Nancy Sinatra’s song Something Stupid:
I know I stand in line......


We may look the same
We may be shaped from one mould
But I am unique

And I know I stand in line
Waiting for your eyes

I may seem quiet
But I will bring art to you
I'll bring you new life

Yet I know I stand in line
Waiting for your touch

Take me to your world
And I will give you spirit
I'll share your dreamtimes

But I know I stand in line
Waiting for your smile


Hosted by Keith's Ramblings

I love your first stanza, a bold statement of fact. My eye kept drifting back to it, wondering how many of us stand in line, each of us a unique island of waiting.

There's something sad about the idea of 'waiting for your eyes'.

But I know I stand in line

And you have it after reading this poem. Did you by chance buy one of these statues? Even the smallest? They seem so beautiful.
