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)

A hand works the pen
The fingers key the letters
But mind and soul write

Beautifully expressed haiku, Gemma. All the writing courses in the world can't impart the most necessary ingredient to writing - the soul's input.

The most awesome writes are when both the mind and the soul cooperate with each other!!
