I wanted a special kind of lesbian love poem. I wanted poems that weren’t pornographic, yet still captured the joy and beauty of romance. I wanted poems with
… the memories
… the fantasies
… the hopes and dreams … all of it.
A muse came and sat on my shoulder, and so we began.
I wrote these poems to whisper to a lover, perhaps as she is nestled in your arms, or you in hers. If you kiss and cuddle and giggle your way through them, my muse and I will be quite pleased.
Here is where you will discover romantic poems:
our love is
turning and twisting
through mystical moments
it was a small ruby
that sent the invitation
this wise little gem
had settled in the perfect spot
between your breasts
so i replied
funny little love poems:
and you rushed to my side
with poultices and potions
you pouffed my pillow
and powdered my feet
and some that are … well, sexy:
you are my fantasy
with the arched back
and castanets undulating overhead
And they are all about the flavors of LOVE.
- Simple Love.
- New Love.
- Divine Love.
Over 80 love poems just for you.
To Order Sausalito Sunrise
I recommend the soft bound edition. The Kindle edition formats the poems differently, omitting some of the style that makes a poem a poem. But if you are on the road, or like to read the Kindle in bed, then that edition will be perfect for you.
One of the nicest compliments I got was when I went to a production at the Oregon Shakespearean Festival and sat next to an acquaintance, an artist. I had just gotten the proof copies and was glancing through one. She asked if she could see it, which of course she could. When the play began, I held out my hand to retrieve the proof, and she protested, No! She wanted to keep it. I promised her a “real” one as soon as they came off the press, and so she relinquished the proof copy.
And another time a friend’s son-in-law read through a copy on the coffee table, and commented on how the poems were just as romantic for everyone as they were for lesbians. Yes! thought I, Here is one romantic guy.
I would love to hear your reaction too. Just jot a note at the bottom of this page. Good, bad, or indifferent, your opinion is still valuable.
