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)

Celebrating the Opening of dVerse


Celebrating the opening of dVerse

Wine is bottled poetry.
Robert Louis Stevenson

Let the wine flow
Let the smiles glow
And share a poetry toast

Poetry can be a lonely space
Like a winter of discontent
Where treads slip on iced roads
And no one knows the event

But the warmth of a pub
Is a welcome rub
Melting the grave ice
A sign of breathing spirits
Sharing a roll of the dice

So let the wine flow
And may the smiles glow
As we share a poetry toast
All forms are welcome to
Buzz a submission

May your Muse be a friendly ghost
