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)

Yes! I always look at your pictures first and then see if my thoughts match yours (they do, but you express them in a much lovelier way).

Teresa said...

That is a very apt simile. Great image to go with the haiku.
