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)

Silver Evening

Silvered evening skies over Dromana beach.
Strange how our summer evenings this year are so varied - both in colour and temperature.
This was an evening of constantly changing colours.

A silvered ev'ning
Hushed waves in whispering greys
Peace for the spirit

Beautiful, peaceful scene--I wish I was the one walking on the beach. I love the haiku--it is "soothing" to the ear as well as the spirit. Mickie ;)
