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)

Let There Be Beauty

Pic by Gemma Wiseman ~ Flowers in various stages of beauty ~ Dromana, Mornington Peninsula
Today's Flowers meme #17

Wondrous soft petals
Cupped like layered crucibles
Plaintive begging bowls

Some fading beauty
Curled like forgotten prayers
Please remember me
