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)

My Twitter Stones

I Twitter / Like a bird singing from prime instincts
Comment: Debs Rickard ~ There's humorous truth in this!

It's a Jabberwocky kind of day / Disgruntled skies need lots of understanding
I can't see Port Phillip Bay / Yet sea mist white-out cannot prove / It's not there
Mass huddle in a gum tree / Colourful /Sweet shrieks of protest
Wild grey rain / Thwarts / The summer fruit massacre by / Rosellas

Keeping still / Someimes can be a recipe for / Keeping stale
Two faces of water / I quench / I flood /Both know /Life and /Death
A darkened / Misty afternoon / Sponged with rain / In Melbourne / (Just like Queensland) / But I have home comforts
Very Strange Summer Skies (Heavenly post)
Blue darkness at dawn /White swirling afternoon mists /A twisted summer

Queensland Floods On My Mind
Dedicated to all those who are struggling through the flood crisis in Queensland!
(Watery Wednesday post #122)
Your world is water / Like a rushing wild demon / Nature's moods unleashed

But we offer sails / Our belief and hope in you / From us ~ Namaste

Summer time / And the living is queasy / Summer time / Flooded with chills / Winter recycled?
Queensland Flood Reflections ...
Twitter and Facebook / Like underground flood rescue / New wave connections
A day inundated with Queensland floods / My computer has crashed / And my kitchen tap has sprung a leak / I feel fractured but fortunate
Plain of wide brown sea / River metamorphosis / Please be a mirage
Wry chameleon / Land of impulsive extremes / My Australia
Summer morning moods / Rainy face breathes herbal scents / Shifting watching eyes
Designer shadows / Reality's calling card / Interpretations
Misty skeletons /A soft fire cleansing the earths / Eerie persuasion

Stars jostle for galactic space / Only a desert spirit would know

Worlds riddled with mud / Floodplains of catastrophe / Streets crammed with heartbeats

Spliced reality / Revolting mud-ribboned streets / Dreams re-invented

Low woomp of grilled speed/ Colours pressed into action/ Umbrella duty

Artwork evolving/ Foam fretting in pools of sand/ Shoreline mandala

I give my lyrics/ Reaching for yours on the winds/ Our music always

Strange cold summer nights/ Like the world is re-turning/ Nature's dark ages

Exquisite Red Rock/ Heavenly sour cream and chives/ Addictive rice crisps

Chat room mania/ Virtual party event/ Invent your ID

Waiting for a romantic evening spin/ Two kookaburras on a clothes line

Sickly late afternoon moon/ Missing your sunshine

Scents of rain/ Like gossamer trinkets on the dark wind

From coat hanger inception to / iron lung birth / blossomed / the iron maiden / Sydney Harbour Bridge

Blank darkness along the back fence/ The holiday season has/ Terminated

Home is where/ the spirit creates/ nurtures seedlings and/ happily strikes/ new grafts

Sometimes I feel/ like an unpainted ship/ circling the seas/ charmed by/ the Flying Dutchman

words laced with lemon/ self-inflicted handicap/ bitter jealousy

beneath the veil of darkness/ fears shape/ fears

it's a bargain/ to wake each day and/ to keep smiling/ each sunset is/ a ripper deal

In wonderful worlds/ Where once little feet wandered/ Like dreams in flash-back

Summer heat/ Like a daze of dreams/ Swirls hypnotically/ Round the crowded sands/ Breeding a dervish trance
