    Val, I just read your name in a poem by Joe Anderson. He likes your poems as much as I do. I am still writing some but need to get back into my stride. I hope you are well. Every day is still precious.

    Valerie is definitely among the most talented poets on Poemhunter.
    She is not afraid to give enough space to her feelings.
    Good feelings, negative feelings, she ventilates and lets them move
    She uses a wonderful language and striking images to translate the emotion into fantastic verses
    Reading her poems is like taking a rest in an oasis
    I hope to read much much more on PH from Val

  • Richard Beevor (5/4/2014 3:58:00 PM)

    quite brilliant, lovely work, thanks for sharing and not dispairing

  • Sandra Feldman (4/18/2014 1:42:00 AM)

    A poet of great sensitivity, beauty and charm., like the Masters once were.
    With words she paints such charm and gives the reader this wonderful sense of well-being
    If poems were like paintings, hers would hang in the Louvre.

    Shall I, No More, Contentment Praise
    Beautifully couched Val.
    Southport? I was a fire chief at Southport circa 1974

Best Poem of Valerie Dohren

A Walk Through Paradise

I close my eyes to find a place
In different time and different space
And in imagination find
A cloistered arbour for my mind
Where thought may there be unconfined

Then in my dreams a path I take
As in a trance, yet wide awake,
To see the world with open eyes
Its glist`ning sands and azure skies -
I take a walk through Paradise

Suspended there reflecting deep
Where time is lost, immersed in sleep,
A sleep of ages long since passed
As on the sea of change were cast
All things which then were reckoned fast

Above all earthly cares to ...

Read the full of A Walk Through Paradise

I Am A Mystery

My mother is the mountain
Sweet ether is her breath
Born of words unspoken
Was I, in tenderness

I know not where I am
Nor what I'm meant to be
I cannot comprehend
I am a mystery
