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)

Beach Enigma

Recent skies over Dromana beach

Bland but bulbous greys
Sands devoid of holidays
Dull but dramatic

Linking to
Sensational Haiku Wednesday - Dull
Hump Day Haiku

I love how the sky - and the sand - is always different at the beach. Dramatic skies, so beautiful.

Helen Campbell said...

Beautiful photo and haiku! I love seeing the gray clouds over water... it give me a peaceful feeling. Happy Hump Day!
