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)

Fire in the Sky

 Fire-like sunset at Safety Beach, Mornington Peninsula

Lingering summer 
Like dying fire in the sky 
Like slowing heartbeats

Linking to Sensational Haiku Wednesday
Prompt - Fire
