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)

Hi Gemma ~~ Happy Tau Day!
Yours is nice. I can almost see the foggy evening with the words! The picture fits wonderfully.
My Tau-Ku is on (link on 'Jim') my

Such conditions can cause the strangest of feelings in otherwise familiar landscapes! Skeletons indeed!

Your words perfectly reflect the image you created. Beautiful both.

somewhat haunting with your photo. beautifully written though. you've really honed your short form poetry. keep up the good work. hope all is well.

Hey there, Gemma.

This is a wonderful tau-ku. It made me shudder -- the eerie imagery in the poem with an equally eerie photo. I loved it.

Easy to lose oneself in the mist. Love the starkness of the overhanging branch in the sky and the mood you have created here.
