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)

Shopping, shopping, shopping !! ?? No not for me, I am no part of that cult. I am part of the everyday-writing-a-haiku-cult. :-)
Lovely haiku.

"Cult" was a very difficult word to work with, in my opinion, and I appreciate what you've done with it!

Virgin’s cult

I see shadows here too, so I'll pretend this is your SSS post! I never got to sleep last night, so will try to catch an hour before heading off to a friend's daughter's spelling bee this morning! Happy SSS to you Miss Gemma.
