Tantalyzing Tuesday Teaser, December 3, 2013 ~ The Incantation of Penelope

Today is Tantalyzing Tuesday where we tickle you with our 200 word teasers written from a picture prompt of our own choosing. I have dipped my creative quill into a bit of Greek Mythology ink. My namesake is Penelope but I flourish and take erotic license under the pen name of Muffy.

I do hope you enjoy this sojourn into a centuries old love affair. If so, do leave me a comment and then please visit the other participating authors. They are wildly creative, select fabulous photographs and love to entertain adoring readers. You will be able to click the link above to see them collected on our group page or you will find them listed below like jewels at your feet.......Enjoy!! 


The Incantation of Penelope
The sun kissed the remains of the day and abandoned the long hours with a final radiant blush. Velveteen darkness descended across the sky and the moon lead the stars as they appeared shyly, one by one. This was the same moon and the same stars reflected in the night sky that you promised to lay at my feet for a lifetime.

I knelt outside and I prayed in the evening chill. I prayed to find my way to you. I summoned the influence of the Goddess over the moon and stars in an incantation of unrequited love.

The heavens collected the power of my love in a field of ignited, mesmeric flurry at my fingertips and I saw your face. I accepted the supremacy of our destiny and our hearts as your outstretched arms reached to hold me in an embrace.

I knew then that I could wait forever for your return. I knew then that the tides of time would turn and bring you back to me. I knew that all the days of my life I would spend in your arms, loving only you in my dreams of passionate consummation as I waited.

Odysseus, my love……” I whispered.

  5. I liked the images evoked. From the description of the sunset to the invocation of the magic to the affirmation of Penelope's patience. Any failings lay outside the missive for Odysseus wasn't deserving of such loyalty.

  13. I love a bit of mythology, Muffy. I also love it when you depart from the purely naughty and write something evocative and romantic. Gorgeously written - and wonderful use of 'pathetic fallacy'. (Is that what you guys call it when the natural world mirrors emotion in literature?) Anyway, loved it.

I was born when we kissed; I died when we parted. I lived in your embrace while we loved..........
