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 ~ Lost

A young girl alone near Dromana beach seems all wrapped in her own almost spring world!

Height of Haiku Challenge
Haiku Heights #82 ~ Lost

Seeming quite lonely
Seeming lost in her own world
Perhaps she is found

Haiku Heights is hosted by Leo

A lost soul has a way to recover, all on their own!

Love the tone you set with this,
