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)

After lean grey warmth
A dabble in sunlit worlds
Utter contentment

That was very nice, I could do with some of that sunlight myself. :-)

The picture reminded me of a place here in Mumbai. :)
The haiku is well done!!

It is such a heavenly feeling when the warmth of the sun touches you after dark dreary wet days :)

Ah, the first non-sinister dabble of the day. I like it. And I, too, want some of that sunshine!
