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?
