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)

Watery Wednesday

Magical Mystical Teacher said...

If those waters are dancing, then it's a furious dance indeed!


Water in a drop of rain,
Water swirling down the drain;
Water clinging to the trees,
Water filling up the seas;
Water frozen, water free,
Water is the stuff for me!

Sea has always had a great impact on onlookers eyes! It is so soothing to just watch the waves racing to the shores again and again as if trying to tell us something.
