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)

Writer's Island 2010 Prompt #23 ~ Soar


Penned thoughts of the soul
Rejoice in the spell of words
Sharing reflections
Free-spirited Muse
You leave in the hollow hours
Where are you roaming
Do you soar on winds
Do you gather memories
Do you pray for me
Sharing reflections
Cobwebbed in the spell of words
Penned grains of the soul

My favorite lines:

Do you soar on winds
Do you gather memories
Do you pray for me

Beautifully done as were all your haiku's.

Teresa said...

Very nicely done!

Priyanka Bhowmick said...

finely penned sequence!

Nanka said...

Great set of four Haiku's. "Rejoice in the spell of words" and "Cobwebbed in the spell of words" are interesting lines but just loved the 3rd Haiku.

Introspective and intense, these penned grains of the soul!

Nalini Hebbar said...

Rejoiced reading the shared lines from the heart...:)

I continue to marvel that you can weave so many different prompts together into a coherent whole!

Haiku Heights: Rejoice!

I like the tone of this!

is it love poetry or missing muse or nothing?

Book Bird Dog said...

Am new to poetry writing. Love it that your haiku follows the traditional 5-7-5 pattern.

Rumya said...

Lovely Haikus, especially the 3rd one, which questions. :)

Bing (PinkLady) said...

Rejoice (Haiku)

Maureen said...

How well all four work together. The third would be my favorite overall, though I like your line "Cobwebbed in the spell of words".

Elizabeth said...

I love the idea that ones muse would offer a prayer on ones behalf, and yet, am sure that mine does that on lots of occasions. Thank you for the series and the well-woven together prompts.


OMJ said...

The first poem was my favorite!

nara malone said...

Love the line about holoow hours. That is exactly how it feels when the muse is absent.
