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)

Quiet Aliens

March each year is a time when the flying of kites is celebrated over Rosebud Beach on the Mornington Peninsula

Kite flying dramas
Spectacles of hushed flying
Like alien eyes
