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)

Hello Gemma!! Seeing you after awhile though I am back myself after a 4 month break.

Your beautiful Haiku words have an apt picture and the question baffles me too!! :)

You have indeed put me in a spot.. a question perhaps need to be just only asked.. why try to answer..

A question that hits me quite often and have tried to put it in words some times.

A Perfect blend of the prompt & Haiku!
