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)

Particles of Spring

Pic by Gemma Wiseman ~ A horse enjoying the light of an early Spring morning at Balnarring, Mornington Peninsua
3WW #CCVII ~ gait + nudge + ripen

Sunlit shades ripen
Hooves test the fresh gait of Spring
Warm winds nudge the soul

Hosted by Thom @ Three Word Wednesday
