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)

Looking at the sea allows us a glimpse backward as well as hints of things to come.

Mr. Walker said...

You captured "seashore" so well - that interaction between land and water - an enigma indeed.
