Biography of Colleen Wright
I have lived in the country and along the coast of 'the lucky country', Australia, and been blessed to have had many various experiences.
Currently I am living on the Queensland Sunshine Coast.
As a result I have grown to appreciate the earth, people, animals, and plants etc, of which I believe we so often take far too much for granted.
Poetry is a wonderful form of expression and communication, and something of which has given me, and others much pleasure.
I am most grateful to our creator for all I have been given.
I dedicate my poetry to my three wonderful children, their familes, those closest to me, and my precious and much valued friends [you as readers also - thank you! ] who have inspired and encouraged me to write many of my thoughts, feelings and experiences.
To all - enjoy life, see the good, feel for those less fortunate and be happy.
Colleen Wright. T.G.
Colleen Wright Poems
The Khaki 'strides' upheld only by the leather plaited belt,
the colours in the checked cotton shirt and the Akubra felt
A couple of things that you should know,
if and when, to the next life you must go.
have passed and burned away hopes - no rain – defeat.
I love your good heart, you see
I love the look of you - for me.
As the fragrance could be too over-powering, too strong or sickly.
I sense the gum leaves from fresh country air
I sense your nearness when you're not there.
I sense the favourite foods you like to eat,
I sense the paddocks of harvested wheat.
This is how you sense me.
I am a reflection of you - you see.
I see you happy - I see you smile
