To The One Who Loves Me

You are the light in my eyes. The love of my life. The reason I am happy. You are the breath in my lungs. The blood in my veins. My every waking thought. You are the spark of my passion. The reality to my fantasy. The one who holds my heart. tara caribou | ©2020 […]

The Mountain Queen

You are the Mountain Queen. For as long as you can remember, you’ve watched the village far below you. Each night, the forge fire burns and the smith’s hammer can be heard all around you.

Glacier Fed

Every day I read the words you write. I can see what’s underneath the tattered pages and blotted ink. There are such deep layers to you. You are a glacier.
