This week's contribution to WATERY WEDNESDAY
It looks rather staged and unlikely, a postcardy kind of a shot,
But I was the one with camera and I know it was certainly not!
Australian waterfalls never could be likened to those of renown,
There's no 'smoke-that-thunders' about them, as they pose for a shot and fall down.
But the falls of the Atherton area, have a picture-book tropical air,
And the palm trees that gather about them are green all the year, never bare.
There's Mena and then there's Mungalli and then just a short way away
We come to this one, Millaa Millaa, which seems to demand we should stay.
Australia's noted for desert, Australia's noted for beach,
But it also is noted for cascades.
So why don't you try some of each?
That is a fantastic photograph. You have framed the waterfall beautifully. It makes me want to step into the picture and join the people on the beach.
Your poem tells much about Australia's cascades.
Thanks for your visit to My World today..(temporarily in NYC)..
I am so enjoying being back on your site, enjoying your poetry...I haven't as yet managed to transfer all my "favorites" to the new laptop, and so I am slowly catching up on them one by one!
Great shot! It's really like a sixties postcard.
It is a bit far away, but I certainly enjoyed them!
I love the sound of running water...and I think I can hear some coming through my computer from your photo. ;-)
I could certainly spend some time there.
This is a very beautiful picture! I want to come to Australia one day! I would have never thought I would see beautiful waterfalls there : ).
How I wish I were there right now, then I could send a postcard perfect picture to my friends : )
Yes!! The capture does look postcardy...
Why dont we try some of each... yyes!
Beautiful post again ma'am.
Sorry for the delay... I was stuck with some nothingness.
Now I'm back and reading your past posts..
You're a hero, really.
that is a lovely photo, very tropical looking......

It does look like a fairy tale spot. I would love to linger there. It is a part of Australia I haven't seen. Beautiful photo.
That's a beautiful shot. Makes me want to go there.
Sydney City and Suburbs
Now that is a wonderful watery waterfall... and look at that beach too.
As a hydrologist, I approve of this post. Love that waterfall, and better yet, and as you say, would like to visit in person ... just to hear its sound.
what a lovely waterfall! looks like the place is hidden, nice spot!
Quite the mix!
What a scene. Serene! Beautiful! Peaceful!
Absolutely gorgeous - A place I'd love to visit! I can see me now, there, on the beach gazing at that waterfall! Niiiice!!!
That is definitely a picture postcard perfect shot. Would love to see a waterfall for myself one day.
What a beautiful picture !
Definitely a postcard! Beautiful!
What a wonderful post! A beautiful photo and a poem to match... a very nice surprise!
Heey Milaa Milaa! I have taken a photo almost exactly from the same spot. Great to see it featured in your poems.
A nice poem that drenches us in this cascade!
