My Dear, Love Hasn’t Forgotten You is Carolyn Riker’s third, full-length book of poetry and prose. This poetry book invites you to dream. There are four sections that melt into each other with ease. Carolyn’s poetry is not ordinary and rarely follows the rules; instead, she becomes a stream of consciousness. “When we are river-like we flow. Nature connects us and grounds us with a love that will never forget us.” In addition to those sentiments, Carolyn doesn’t hold back with emotions. She wears them on her sleeve and dreams with them and you will become a part of this mystical mystery. My Dear, Love Hasn’t Forgotten You is full, real, kind, deep, spiritual, caring and poetic. You will find yourself tantalized and hopefully it’ll spark your own imagination’s creative juices.

“When I first read the pages of My Dear, Love Hasn’t Forgotten You, I felt I was stepping into a parlor of soul surrounded by the diverse wisdom of sage philosophers, talented artisans, and brilliant musicians. To read Carolyn’s exquisite work is to enter the world of the shaman, storyteller, and mystic. She understands the language of hidden realms and holds the ability to make the unseen seen through deep feeling, image and word. This is Carolyn’s gift shared so powerfully in her latest offering: she invites the reader to walk between worlds and journey into the territory of the heart, helping each of us remember the truth of who we really are.”— DR. BETHANNE K.W., AUTHOR
“Indeed, Love Hasn’t Forgotten You! Carolyn Riker, a poet who is ever thoughtful of the dreamer. I find myself wanting to linger in the softness of her words. The kind of book that invites the soul in for a good feed!”— Lisa Fosmo, writer and poet
