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)

Brush of Sunlight

Pic by Gemma Wiseman ~ Some flowers still linger in Autumn by Dromana beach, Mornington Peninsula
Mellow Yellow Monday #119

Like a yellow brush
Like Autumn's stubborn sunlight
Like a glimpse of Spring

This is a very beautiful picture you have drawn. I always forget you are waiting for the winter there. And I'm so glad it's finally over.

I love how there seems to be a slight blur of motion
as if a breeze has gone by

Oh, a bottlebrush tree, right? It's just beautiful. What a delicious creamy yellow! I seem to remember red ones from my 1982 visit to Queensland, could that be right or do I misremember?
Wonderful photo, Gemma.

You couldn't have picked a more perfect title for this delightful photograph. The sunlight on that lovely bloom is magical and the haiku is a splendid addition.
