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)

Height of Haiku Challenge ~ Hidden

Each maze at the Enchanted Maze Garden has a sign explaining the idea of the maze.
The interesting feature of this maze is that you can see where to begin and end, but connecting the two is quite another matter - given these restrictions!
The process of the solution is hidden.

A great haiku.
The journey is always the best bit, sometimes better than the solution.

I find that most solutions are hidden from me until I'm willing to make the journey. Sometimes I am thrust upon the journey whether I'm willing or not!

Hidden things here and here and here

We have only walked a couple of mazes and they always really confuse me terribly. I have a very poor sense of direction. I think being able to see the end would give me more hope even if it didn't really help me to figure it out..
