Sausalito Sunrise – Poems for Lesbians and Other Lovers

Snippets of text from Sausalito Sunrise: Poems for Lesbians and Other Lovers

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.

Sausalito Sunrise
Here is where you will discover romantic poems:

our love is
a labyrinth
turning and twisting
through mystical moments

sensual poems:

it was a small ruby
that sent the invitation
this wise little gem
had settled in the perfect spot
nestled gently
between your breasts

so i replied

funny little love poems:

i sniffled
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
taut thighs
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

Cover for Sausalito Sunrise: Poems for Lesbians and Other LoversTo ORDER it right now, just click on the book cover to your left. You will go straight to Amazon.com where you can get a print version (about US$ 17.99) or a Kindle version (US$ 5.99).

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.
