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)

Passing Thoughts #14 ~ February Spellbound

Passing Thoughts #14 ~ February Spellbound

1. Revenant by hedgewitch fascinated me with the Gothic darkness of magical poetry.
My Comment: A fascinating sense of dark drama looming into a storm! Beautiful!

2. (a) Sitting With Ghosts from Poesia Torta (Crooked Poetry) - aka Kenia Cris, is a tantalising reflection on other worlds infiltrating our lives.
It's all in the way we live our lives
and the way we sit our ghosts
at the dining table...
My Comment: O what a creative, light-hearted reflection on thoughts of more eerie beings that may inhabit our lives! Loved this!

(b) Also from Poesia Torta, I loved #441.
I need life to be hectic
so I have no free time
to think about empty spaces
My Comment: As if in being hectic, the more unsavoury elements of life are squashed and silenced for awhile! An enchanting but dark melancholy underlines these words! Beautifully crafted!
