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)

I once was a tree...

Reflections in the wetland area at Moonlit Sanctuary, Pearcedale

I once was a tree
Tall, proud, a sense of purpose
I do remember
