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)

Butterfly Cinquain on Kites

Pic by Gemma Wiseman ~ Unusual, grounded kite at the Kite Festival 2011, Rosebud, Mornington Peninsula
Dodge Writes ~ Today's Prompt ~ Butterfly Cinquain

Fanciful wings
Limping on wind-strummed threads
Connected mirrors of blue dreams
New kites
Like a watercolour jarlsburg
Flighty cameo space
Like fresh lanterns

Today's Prompt is hosted by JL Dodge

Yep I know the linky it still up from yesterday, but last time we changed it, some had a problem finding it again, thinking about how to fix that, in the mean time, it will be new again tomorrow !

Amazingly beautiful. You have the best eye ever Gemma.

Amazingly prolific you are as well! I was away from blogging for a week and you had 26 posts during that time. I looked at the rest on my Google reader. You never ever miss. Every post is lovely.
