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)

Mysterious and alluring, like the photo.

Carmela-J said...

So much imagery in so few words!

Chris G. said...

Yes I caught a touch of the oriental from the umbrella in my own post as well...but yours is short and sweet. It does hold a sense of the romantic, doesn't it? As she looks longingly out over the beach, this veiled woman...does her love lie within?

Reflections said...

Very tight, yet filled with imagery... beautiful!

Fireblossom said...

Oriental nothing. I know her. That chick's from Hoboken!

Maureen said...
