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)


My Haiku Responses to Posts

In response to Parking Lots from Magical Mystical Teacher18.07.09
Shadows lean and block
Like dark quadrilaterals
Alternate fences

In response to I Remember from Sweet Repose 18.07.09
What if we are light
Captured in earthly terrains
Until new stars fall

In response to Lions from Magical Mystical Teacher 13.07.09
Kingly demeanour
Wreathed in dramatic gold mane
Pride of the jungle


In response to Yellow Tulip's Yellow Tulip 9.08.09
No end to the note
Deep unfinished symphony
Tulip enigma

In response to Shadow Shot Sunday #59 from Magical Mystical Teacher 30.08.09
Soft waves in motion
Softened patterns and textures
Softening feelings

Just a few small boys
Gather musical shadows
And the band plays on

In response to Esther Garvi's Battle of the Soul 27.03.10
Just let the winds blow
Your soul needs some healing time
Space and dimension
