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)

One Shoot Picture prompt ~ Image by Katherine Forbes

Shadow connections
Smoothing corrugated worlds
Our secret mural

Our different shoes
Prime points in a pyramid
A frame for our souls

Facing each other
Shaping lone spaces with love
As one in blue jeans

One Shoot Sunday is hosted by Dustus @ One Stop Poetry

Interesting approach to and angles, approaching the romantic through the formation of its image. Constructive, building the romantic gradually through the creation/description of the shadowed joining before our eyes. Nice work.

I like the use of the haiku form, here, building into a poem made from an image. Clever.
