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)

KItes are wonderful. Somehow the sight of the blue sky and kites makes me feel hopeful and happy which I am not really feeling much of right now as I watch the horrifying earthquake news.

I like the imagery of "sky confetti" that refers to the tail of the kite! Wonderfully worded wings!
