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)

Washing in the Mist

Colours in the mist
Like lost traces of living
Like unloved symbols

Connecting ideas
Freestyle imagination
Mist of allusion

Linking to:
Sensational Haiku Wednesday ~ Freestyle

Makes you wonder just how dry the laundry can get when the air is saturated - a very romantic turn on a rather mundane chore.

You did a great play on emotions with this - well done! I also love that you spell it "colours" as we do in Canada. ;)
