In My Wildest Dreams by Valeri Beers

a “wild” poem for Mike Maggio’s 30 for 30 contest, please vote for my poem  🙂  This is also for  poetry prompt #13, which has the theme “wild”


 

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?

PLEASE (and thank you) vote for Starpull :)

April is gone and, with it, the 30 for 30 poetry event. It’s now time to vote for your favorite poem.

If you have not had a chance to read the poems posted during April, please take some time to do so. We had some very fine poems this year from some very find poets, so read through them, choose one and vote for it by going to www.mikemaggio.net. The poll will be on the right side of the main  web page.  The poet whose poem gets the most votes will get a signed copy of my novel, The Wizard and the White House. The poll will be open until May 6th. And please note: you may only vote once.

So spread the word. And thanks to all the poets who participated this year and to those individuals who shared their comments.
