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)

Blue boats on blue seas
Attractive little sailboats
Cutting through the waves

Nice photos to go with the haiku. You are so lucky to have warm weather year round. Here's my poetic effort for the day: Here's mine.
