In My Wildest Dreams by Valeri Beers

I’m moving
to
Croatia
to be
a poet
on
Youtube

I’m the
Queen.
Lord Edward
of
Lincoln
Lady Rachel
of
the Ridge.

My
wildest dreams
are dreamed
on a
rural ridge
where wildlife
lives.

Unpheasant
the patridge
checks in
a
couple times
a
season.
Woodpeckers tapping
for
dominance
in
my backyard.
The
dead deer
in
the road,
white car smoking,
wind ruffling
the
brown fur
on
it’s neck.
Even
my cat
is described as
a
“little wild creature”
by the internet.

Ok Google,
how do  you say
poet
in Croatian?

This is the first year I have not ordered a National Poetry month in time for April, so I just did.  If it’s still available, it says it will take 4-6 weeks to get here.

An apology

I have not updated this page with any new poetry since summer of last year.

I am still paying poetic attention. It’s Black History month, read some Maya Angelou or Langston Hughes.  There might be posts here for Women’s History month (that it is in MARCH does not escape me).

Check out the Poetry Pasta Facebook page for calls for submissions, poetry and writing cartoons, articles and pictures.You are always welcome to post your poems on our FB page

Stay tuned … 🙂
