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)

Whispers of Spring

Whispering voice of
Spring hues ~
Angel blossoms
Waiting to

Some early Spring voices
(In loud chorus)
The colours of
New days

But I love
The tiny
Pink cherubs
Who sing
The colours of
A young
Child ~
Briefly ~
Too briefly

I you are entering the pastels of a season of growth...and we are entering the long sleep...death, dried flattened skeletons, cold icey fingers...cabin fever...the rape of the utility companies. I do not like winter...can I come play at your house (all winter)...LOL

Beautiful post of lovely spring flowers and poetry! I like the way you've framed in the flowers. Here in Canada, we're moving slowly towards our autumn season.
