Lisa Cresswell Wilkinson Poems
Crash, smash a flying bottle Enters my back yard at full throttle I missed the little blighters which is more than a pity But thats just simple run of the mill when you live in ASBO City
Burnt Orange Sunrise.
Unaware of the firing motion The moon reflects in her glazing eyes Solitary motion distills the summer days Transparent figures move in the burning sunrise
R.ainbows in the sky reminders of you A.lways feeling sheltered with the colours shining through
Morning Mis-Hap! -Fun
I rose from my pit at a quarter to six only sleeping three hours I needed a fix (caffeine) My eyes were all blurry and filled up with matt As I stumbled downstairs I tripped over the cat
A Pantoum- Dancing Under The Stars
As she dances under the moonlit stars Feeling the adrenalin rushing through her veins For now she is alone, but not lonely She makes her own music as her heart beats in time
Naughty Nursery Rhymes Again
I was not searching for answers Curiosity brought me to you. But I kept an open mind and my own point of view Predicaments you told me
Over The Rainbow
Way up high above we see the purity in the sky A rainbow full of hope after the rain passes by Shining in the distance red and yellow blue and green Oh what a beautiful sight, that mankind has ever seen

Remember the nights we stayed out until dark The songs we made up while we played in the park Remember the names that we carved on the trees
A Pantoum - Alone On The Hillside
As she sits alone on the hillside watching the sunrise Silence is golden, movement is absent Upon the grassy fields she sees shadowing darkness The freshness in the air surrounds her intensely
Haiku - Rainbow Light
Colours of the earth
A Grizzly Dream- Fun
The other night I retired to bed and had a crazy dream That I was walking on the beach when I heard an awesome scream Standing right before me was a great brown grizzly bear wearing a tu-tu and a basque and a ribbon in her hair
Garden Of Serenity.
Feeling the serenity that knows all its powers Unwinding the mazes not knowing what devours To sprinkle the liquid as each we do walk Inside is the garden where we meet and talk
Skip through the meadows
Were You There?
You left my life but were you still there?
When I needed some guidance and someone to care.
Within my heart you warmed my soul
As my faith went slipping down a black hole
My life looked bleak, I felt nothing at all
Could pick me up so I had to fall
As I lay on rock bottom shone a glimmer of light
Energising inside me needing to fight
For years I searched for answers
