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)

Shadowy Dragon


A dragon feature
Like yesterday's voice and soul

The haiku really adds. I love "bathing in old light." I want to pull up closer and listen for a sound coming out of its mouth.

I wonder if he comes alive when you're not there!

The dragon looks sort of tough, but the background shadows give this creature a softer appearance, not mean but far more affable. The shadow changes his personality!

Both the image and the words just glow! And, it seems as though the dragon has two shadows...

Is that dragon peering into the window when no one is looking? Only the shadow knows.

I like the "old light," it is warm and mellow.
