Ice and Snow Winter Photography

Hi friends, here’s another little glimpse at my little bit of Alaska. It was fairly chilly, relatively speaking, for a few weeks but now it’s been in the warm high-teens to mid-twenties (Fahrenheit degrees)… excluding wind chill of course. I can’t believe how warm it’s been and how little snow we’ve gotten. I hope that […]

Helium

Laying on the grass, hand in hand Together staring into the wide blue A breeze slips across our skin The longer we gaze up and up and up Deep blue calls out to deeper blue It’s almost as if we are floating Weightless, tiny but always together She sighs and I look over at her […]

Put The Work In

Be willing to put the hard work into yourself. Look at your own actions and thoughts with a clear mind. Forgiveness is hard work. Being honest with yourself is hard work. Stepping out of your comfort zone is hard work. Admitting You Were Wrong is hard work. Change. Growth. Relationships. Silence… it’s all hard work. […]

Like Peas in a Pod

like peas in a pod we go together like bananas and yogurt… you be the banana ummm I’ll be the yogurt, go on, dip into my creamy depths but oh I’m getting ahead of myself… yes, that voice of yours, I could listen to for hours while you talk about science and geeky things and […]

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 […]

Don’t Blink

She has beautiful eyes The most entrancing eyes Becoming lost Oh I find myself staring Diving Swimming Floundering A whirlpool Spinning me around Waves cover my face I forget to breathe I willingly drown She’s my oxygen now tara caribou | ©2020

Ocean Scenery

There aren’t many places in the world that make me happy more consistently than the ocean. Or, perhaps, the beach by the ocean (because let’s face it, I’m not out in the water… it’s Alaska, for Pete’s sake). It’s the smell in the air. The wide open spaces. The sounds of seagulls and eagles screeching. […]

Gone Fishin’

I’m around… sort of. Summer in Alaska. Busy. I’ve been the last few days doing a type of subsistence fishing called set-net. It’s moderately labor intensive but worth it to teach others the “old ways”. So here are a few pics, should my view interest you. Mostly silver salmon, which is exactly what I wanted. […]

Crash

Slide your hands across my ribs Lick my neck and pull me closer Push yourself deeper Deeper into my slippery pink heart My glossy blue eyes flare wide Then drift silently closed with a sigh Let your sly tongue ravish my mind I’m open, open wide and gasping Astonishment and wonder blankets my cheeks Lift […]
