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)

Grey Autumn Melbourne

Pic by Gemma Wiseman ~ A view across the Yarra River of inner Melbourne
Watery Wednesday #139

Grey light from grey clouds
Like life colours hibernating
Sleeping urban space

Gemma, you really captured the tint of the urban landscape. I used to live in NYC down the block from the Dakota Hotel, and sometimes the grey of the cement perfectly matched the grey of the city sky. A nice memory, thanks. Amy

I love your haiku. "sleeping urban space". I don't usually think of urban spaces as sleeping but you've found it and expressed it beautifully with words and photo.
