This is Love will speak to you for it is ageless and true. This is Love, is Carolyn Riker’s second, full-length book of poetry and prose. There are three sections where she conveys the art of self-love, how love is everywhere, and the invariable highs and lows of relationships. She writes about love from a field of colors as seen from her soul; it’s not all pretty.
Her poetry gives you a range of betrayal’s bitter taste and how the heart aches coupling each section with her fondest companions: dreams, nature, art, and music.
She instinctively relies on imagination and rekindles the depths of love’s astounding abilities. With full transparency, she writes from a place of what love has taught her and what love isn’t.
