THE MEANING OF AUTUMN

AUTUMN whispers the tones of yesterday in a minor key ~ Gemma Wiseman

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)

A Kookaburra Story


Pic by Gemma Wiseman ~ Two of our kookaburra friends from Arthurs Seat, Mornington Peninsula
~
Carry on Tuesday #20 ~ This week, the prompt is a quotation from the Austrian dramatist Friedrich Halm:
Two souls with but a single thought,
Two hearts that beat as one

~
Two souls together
Same pass on the same air line
I wing what you wing
~

Pic by Gemma Wiseman
~
Two souls are lower
My questions are your questions
But who has answers
~

Pic by Gemma Wiseman
~
I see a new way
But I see the old way still
Where do we fly now
~

Pic by Gemma Wiseman
~
I say old is best
Do you hear me loud and clear
You must take my way
~

Pic by Gemma Wiseman
~
It's cool my old soul
Two hearts still beat best as one
Lets share our ideas
~
Test the new and old
Two souls could mean just one thought
One dream one heartbeat
