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)

Colour Tensions

Like cloud decisions
To close light in pink or grey
Dramatic tensions

Your haiku is so clever---it perfectly matches your sky shot, which is lovely. I really like the pinks and grays of the clouds.
