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)

Painting by the Sea

Bright sails for dull days
Painted corner by the sea
Permanent mirror

I missed your RT but I love the painting on the well. So reminiscent of summer.

My first thought was that a mural by the sea is almost overkill -- already so much to look at. But your poem, comparing it to a permanent mirror makes me like it better!

Rebecca said...

Makes me think, "I'd rather be sailing." Nice poem.

Dianne said...

I really like how the sails are exxaggerated, makes the mural dramatic and bright

I like this! I too liked the 'mirror' comparison.
Love those little shadows that show up as well!
