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)

Lovely blues in the those photos and I just love haikus. When I started teaching (donkey's years ago) I had the most recalcitrant pupils writing haikus and just loving it. Go well, dear Tasmainian friend!
