Letters to My Lover from a Small Mountain Town [NOOK Book]

Overview

Heather Taylor Johnson’s poetry captures the immediacy of a crisp Rocky Mountains landscape and the moments of intimacy we wish we could freeze-frame.

This is a celebration of clean air, snow and sunflowers, and a home divided between two continents, but it’s mostly about the vibrancy and transforming power of love.

Editorial Reviews

Chris Ransick
Johnson’s unique gift here is to reveal, line to line, how vibrant real intimacy can be when the lover is present only in the dream one wakes from alone, transformed into “Spring rain/wet earth.”
Jill Jones
An open conversation with family and friends, and with the things of this world, which traverses the stresses, the niggles and the sadnesses, but mostly the complexities of celebrating the everydayness, the ongoingness of living.
Libby Hart
Taylor Johnson sings praises of the natural world and domesticity. Love poems abound (there’s even a love poem to boutique beer!) so that every page speaks of the ‘things our bodies need’ -– love, food, acceptance, shelter and belonging.
