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)

Clouds on a Mission

Clouds roll in over Dromana, Mornington Peninsula.

Rumbling waves of clouds
Like a child grim with temper
And the mood darkens
