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)

For me the test of haiku is whether it can stand alone or not and yours certainly passed. The pictures people post with their poetry are lovely but I must admit I prefer to just have the words so that I can form my own visualisations. I ejoyed the haiku and the images it evoked.
