    I think everyone should read this poet - she has an incredible ability to open up windows onto a world that she knows so well.

    This poet really loves the nature, and she open a new window on our Godly Land.
    the real talented lover of our nature makes new pictures in own verse of words.
    I like poems on Frog and poppy.
    Once she may be known as mother of this nature...

Best Poem of Colleen Wright

Drought In Australia

Drought in Australia.

The Khaki 'strides' upheld only by the leather plaited belt,
the colours in the checked cotton shirt and the Akubra felt
are accentuated by the brown of the elastic sided R. M.W. Boots
of the man from the bush – he loves his country, Australia, his roots.

This solitary independent unassuming and yet self assured man
falls sideways into his driver's seat of his Holden, as only he can.
Ignition on – car gathering speed as he reaches for the door,
then struggles to correct the seat belt – then foot to the floor.

With right hand only ...

Dusk In The Golden West.

Streaks of the setting sun lay softly on the flaxen
fields of the cold calm evening in the Golden West.
Purple patches appear in the hilly horizon with the
wintery night air putting the summer growth to the test.

Tall trees standing silently still and their stark stems
and trunks holding tightly, securely, ready for the night.
Rich, red soil containing the warmth of the rays of the day's
filtered sunshine, of which is leaning low - almost out of sight.
