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)

Night Light

Night light over Dromana

 Watchful night light eyes
But one night of shooting stars
Is a chance to dream

Linking to:
Tackle It Tuesday ~ Shooting Stars

That is so true about chances to dream. I like to think they will come true.

Beautiful photo, and wishful haiku. Mine was on the wishful side, as well. :)

Maybe that one night is all that we need.. I can imagine looking out the window to the sky, waiting for that.. Nice one, Gemma.
