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)

The wind should be my friend...


Wind blows the feathery foliage of a plant in the wetlands at Coolart, Balnarring

FormForAll ~ Pantoum

The wind should be my friend
An angel by my side
A time when spirits blend
A time to be a bride

An angel by my side
Realities transcend
A time to be a bride
Furrowed fears end

Realities transcend
Secrets find a tide
Furrowed fears end
Moments softly glide

Secrets find a tide
Inner questions penned
Moments softly glide
Broken dreams mend

Inner questions penned
A loving caring friend
Broken dreams mend
The wind should be my friend

Lovely - angels and wind with blessings throughout. It was so gentle and also so perfectly realized. I think you really surpassed the set form here. Well done. Really loved it. G.

This was supremely effective with its short, sharp images and self-contained lines, all supported by the perfect tick-tock of the meter. And the photograph was breathtaking. Enjoyed it much.
