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)

Some Spring!

A Spring-like, sunny Dromana beach - at last!

A sunlit beach scene
No fierce, chilled, wind-driven rains
Relief from grey skies

Linking to:
Sensational Haiku Wednesday - Fierce
Hump Day Haiku

Wonderful! I love the photo and your haiku, well done! Enjoy the warm weather. We're heading into our cold season, and I'd rather be there on your beach in the sunshine. Happy Hump Day!

Awesome Haiku and so spot on. I love the picture and wouldn't it make a lovely painting. If I could paint houses, etc. certainly would try. Thank you. Happy Haiku Day to you.

Gloria said... fact, if you don't mind, can I print the pix out and "try" my hand at painting it. I don't know when I would begin and even if I begin, tee hee...but it seems like a challenge.

What a cool place! Love the little boathouses (?), or are they cabanas?

Your serene beach photo certainly conveys the absence of fierceness!
