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)

Library Shadows


Morning shadows in my school library

Thoughts free to wander
Gathering a world of souls
Soft shadows of life

Libraries are great and their shadows even better! :)

Love the poetry. Love the way you've framed this, too. That wavy line in the middle is a wonderful element.

Ralph said...

This is such a cool scene - libraries are always a place of learning and discovery, so discovering these soft shadows around the pictures of staff and books is beautiful!

Been a long time since I was in a school library. I go real often to our public one tho.

How interesting! Your shadows are unique.

Just as long as shadowy dealings aren't going on in there!

This are absolutely awesome. Not only the shadows but the colors. There is even a bit of mystery to the image. Hope all is well. Buddy is running an 18 mountain race - I think this must be his mid life crisis - and I am scared to death he is going to get hunt. Am in a motel room now with him snowing and me on the computer. I just wanted to thank you for your kind words about my Beartown post. It is the most special place and I cannot wait to go back in a couple of week to see al the repairs. I will repost again then. Take care my friend, genie

Great shadow shot!

bj said...

This is awesome...just perfect.

My hubs got a Kindle last Christmas and loves it...it is so much easier for him to hold than a book (remember...we are olden) but he says that as much as he loves it, there IS something to be said about holding a fine book in your hands and feeling the pages.:)

Beverley Baird said...

Such lovely soft shadows! Love your haiku as well!

chubskulit said...

Eden said...
