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)

Sadness and understanding together in these Haiku: so well done! :-)

Ah yes, appreciation, seemingly, at times, a vanishing art.

Thinking the memory of tears brings about the tears. Love the haiku - so much emotion present there.

*Deep satisfied sigh*

(And thanks for commenting on my carry on tuesday!)
