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. This is Love will speak to you for it is ageless and true.

Review quote

"Carolyn's newest collection of poetry and prose, This is Love, offers a transcendent and authentic perspective on the nature of love. Her lyrical words weave back and forth through a tender, yet fierce, exploration of love's many layers. Beautiful, honest, gritty, real, bittersweet, vulnerable: Carolyn manages to capture the complexities, heartache, and sweet poignancy of self-love, connection, and relationship. Through its deeply sensitive soul, This is Love invites the reader to drop into their own heart-space, and find their own truths and insights among the many gems and pearls found in Carolyn's exquisite work." --Dr. BethAnne K.W., psychologist and author of Lamentations of The Sea, Winner of the 2017 Silver Nautilus Award for Grief and Loss

"In this eloquent, quotable, heart-spoken collection, get lost and found in the blessings and burdens, the highs and lows, the illusions and reality, the outer journey and inner search of what it means to love, and to reap love's language, intoxication, medicine and fruits." --Tanya Markul, author of The She Book
