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)

But even sweet innocence
Caresses shadows

How true!!! It always takes some efforts to be purely white... but maintaining it that way is what is the real challenge.. Very well written! :)

Beautiful haiku and picture. SOme say there is no such thing as pure white. It needs those shadows to show itself off.
