Tantalyzing Tuesday Teasers, April 15, 2014 ~ Adonis Achilles

Tantalyzing Tuesday Teasers ~ a day of magical mystery from a selected photograph that inspires the author, me, to write 200 short, precise words to describe the story evoked.

I selected my photo today from Michael Xavier, with his blessing. Michael is a wonderful underground American poet whom I admire greatly. His work inspires, as does this photo, the connection, the magical connection between a man and a woman ~ between lovers. How each can be the others inspiration, bridge, pleasure and pain. The earth, the sun, the moon and the stars are mere supporting actors in the dance between lovers. They are the fine connective tissue upon which lovers communicate. Love is our strength .........but it is also our weakness. Enjoy! xo

Adonis Achilles
Her eyesight adjusted to the salty sting of the remains of her excitement. She saw what she thought were two white burning candle tips in the shadows: ‘twas the whites of his eyes in the darkness. He emerged quietly from the velvet darkness and his body took a glistening shape as it shone like a jewel with his perspiration.

The fevered sight of his naked body stole her breath and paralyzed her heart. Wanting to memorize every nuance, she stared at his chiseled good looks. His chest was shimmering: the carved perfection of a Michelangelo statue not of opaque alabaster but black with a slightly amethyst undertone to the blackened skin-tight drape of the sweet shadowed flesh of a hungry man, eager to indulge his insatiable fantasies.

She mistook a wicked twinkle as he approached; a half-smile lay in residence upon the angle of his chin and jaw. Then she realized quite instinctively, that she was deftly in control. At some point, every woman realizes her strength over men and awakens to use her womanly weakness, precisely.

One drop of his iridescent perspiration fell to her rising breast, searing straight to her heart exploding a thousand shimmering radiant stars to adorn their passions.

  4. Your title and reference to Michelangelo were the words luring me deeper into your story. I love both of the images in drawing me into her web of passion. And these lines, I'd love to steal them: "She mistook a wicked twinkle as he approached; a half-smile lay in residence upon the angle of his chin and jaw. Then she realized quite instinctively, that she was deftly in control." I don't know how you wrote this very visual scene of love. And with those drops of [perspiration dripping down at the end..., marvelous image and sensation.

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