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)

Your rehearsal...not mine...

Pic by Gemma Wiseman ~ Amazing what lovely morning colours are just outside the window!
3WW #CCXLI ~ damp + incensed + skid

Your rehearsed passions
Damp with old incensed untruths
Like dust skid by me

Hosted by Thom @ Three Word Wednesday

Love the light in the photo! And your haiku is kind of sad but, probably very true for many.
