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)

I see whispers...

Summer shadows on a boat shed wall at Dromana beach

A wild fragile plant
Like soft visual whispers
Like furled fairy wings

Sweet shadows, these are! I do so love this grass-we have it here too. Always makes me feel good looking at them-especially when they've dried up like this.

They speak softly and quietly. Subtle shadows need not shout, and these are at peace now...
