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?

Memorial Day by Valeri Beers

Memorial Day
by Valeri Beers

All gave some
Some gave all
Just take a moment & remember
When you’re having a ball

For the price they
were willing to pay
you don’t have to
go to work or school today

I don’t want to be
a downer at your barbecue
or make you feel guilty about your
long weekend plan
Just take a moment & remember
why you can

Happy New Year :)

New Year by Valeri Beers

No revising
this one
No revisiting
that one

Try to
find
new words
for
old problems
Try to
save
the
good ones

Remember
Remember
Remember

I
will be
the
poetry person
among
the
book people

Remember
Remember

————————-
About this poem:  What if poems were
like calendars?  You had to throw them
away & write all new poems?  Erica
Jong told me to try to save the good ones 🙂

Have you seen the movie Fahrenheit
451? At the end of the movie, the
“book people” have remembered a book,
committed it to memory and then burned it.
