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)

Filaments of warmth
Gentle glows on wintry days
Brushstrokes of moonlight

Just the phrase 'coastal walk by winter seas' is lovely. As is the flower of course.
