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)

Wonderful Haiku, Gemma!

Loved it. :-)

Strangely enough, whenever I looked up, yesterday, I saw seagulls, mostly in the singular. Like your haiku, and yes, sometimes alone is very happy,

Wonderful shot of the lonely gull and Haiku. At least being alone it does not have to share it food.
