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 […]

From Morning to Night – Collaboration

The cold early morning breeze penetrating the thick blazer and piercing my chest, Another long day ahead of me. First thing this morning, I’m listening to his voice On my iPod, a recording of him reciting poetry, While I’m walking sidewalks, dodging elbows. A lonely drive through an overcrowded highway, A feeling of isolation even […]

Pirouette – A Collaboration

I’m spinning and whirling She’s grinning, and twirling My laughter contagious Her caphtor, salacious I twist and twirl until I fall She fists young cowgirl Crazy in love Sounds above Right down onto the green grass Left upwards into the seen path Tears are pouring down Fears aren’t forming now I don’t care She really […]

Don’t Blink

He 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 He’s my oxygen now tara caribou | ©️2018

The Present – Collaboration

What I like about bluerooster’s writings is that he says a whole lot in and around the actual point. He throws words down and mixes them up. Laying down sentences only to strategically remove a key word or two. The reader is allowed to fill in the rest. I find his posts to be whimsical […]

60 Second Pluviophile

Pluviophile: (n) a lover of rain; someone who finds joy and peace of mind during rainy days. One minute. Just one minute of a gentle spring rain. Spring birds calling. I think you can hear the neighbor’s goats a couple times. You can’t see it yet, but fresh green growing things are coming up under […]

Spring Day(dreaming)

The sun is shining. Two of the volcanoes are smoking and my beach is nearly deserted. Where I live, we get 15 hours of daylight today, as the sun will set in about three hours at 21:35. It’s incredibly peaceful as I alternate between staring at the view and texting with a friend who lives […]

Finding Myself

I have found through living in this vast state that if I allow myself to lose myself, I end up actually finding my true self. Alaska, with its wide vistas; tall mountains; ample beaches and oceanfront landscapes; diverse wildlife; smoking volcanoes; long summer days and dark winter nights; the auroras; spirited folks with a mind […]

Liebster Award Fun Stuff

The Liebster  is an award that is given to bloggers by other bloggers. Liebster in German means sweetest, kindest, nicest, dearest, beloved, lovely, kind, pleasant, valued, cute, endearing, and welcome. I’m going to break all the rules and simply answer the questions that my wonderful nominee Laura asked. But first go check out her blog and […]

One Moment

You know me. I don’t ever post photos (except that one time). But today was different. I’m feeling a lot better than I have been. I was able to get down to the beach again, after months of not being able to. The beach is my therapy. My happy place. It’s winter here. The wind […]
