Comments about 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 ...
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
