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)

Lonely Looking Sky


Winter's beach at Balnarring

Lonely looking sky
Just one bird wings his journey
Through Winter's beauty

It may be a lonely sky, but it certainly is a pretty one. The beach with all the seaweed reminds me so of my childhood. The image is so peaceful. Lovely. genie

Lonely, yes, but peaceful, too.
I really like the curve of the beach.
Have a blessed day!

a serious sky; looking decidedly 'cool'

Beautiful beach, beautiful bird, beautiful poem. Makes me think of the song Lonely Looking Sky by Neil Diamond, in his Jonathan Livingston Seagull, an album that meant a great deal to me on my odyssey to the sea.
