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)

Christmas Revival

Pic by Gemma Wiseman ~ Window in Wingback Books, a pre-loved bookshop in Dromana, Mornington Peninsula
Haiku Friday meme
Poefusion's Friday 5 prompt ~ blemish + eject + flinch + pout + dot

Small Christmas window
Books waiting for love again
Christmas soul revival
A white dot for snow
Cartoon Christmas fantasy
Mischievous spirit
Blossom Street may flinch
Christmas letters eject from hearts
Just entertainment
Curled corner blemish
Tchaikovsky's sugar plum dance
Eternal music
Small Christmas window
Old books pout with dignity
Christmas soul revival

I love secondhand bookshops and I see one book my children loved to read. It's "Babar".

I love going to a bookstore. Sometimes an old book is better than a new one. Sounds like someone is gearing up for the Christmas holiday with this poem. Have a nice day.

You have me wanting to go to a little hole in the wall bookstore now and touch the books.

I love that books can pout with dignity.
