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)

I Won't Share!

Pic by Gemma Wiseman ~ Sometimes a kookaburra and a magpie don't like to share the TV antenna on our home in the Dromana Hills, Mornington Peninsula.
Black and White Wednesday meme
3WW #CCXX ~ educate + object + silence

Not quite feathered friends
Both like to rule their own space
Like mini sky wars

Some choose aloofness
Some object to cold silence
Educate passions

I loved the line - "like to rule their own space" true of humans..probably of all living beings...
The tree wants to rule and hence cracks the earth...the earth wants to rule and hence makes uncrackable stones...
on and on it goes....

So much variety in nature and it's the variety that makes life enjoyable.

Even the display of emotions is so varied and this absence of uniformity breaks all monotony.

Great Haiku's!!

I love the road to China picture and the birds wrangling over the space.

Gemma, "like mini sky wars," charming. A handful of words to create a fun, fanciful take on the prompt.

Here's mine:
