Today is Tantalyzing Tuesday Teaser. We have a plethora of prurient partners who have toiled in preparation of their finest passionate missives for your pleasure. You can read each of their wonderful 200 word stories (no more, no less), based upon a photo of their own selection that tickles their muse, by following the link above. I also have them listed like gourmet appetizers for your party pleasures upon which to nibble..............yummy.
Sunday night’s full moon appeared bigger and brighter in the night sky than it has in nearly 70 years, and all you had to do to witness its shining glory is look up.
“Supermoon” is a non-technical term for a moon that turns full at the same time it hits perigee — the point on its orbit when it is closest to Earth. The moon’s path around our planet is shaped more like an oval than a circle, so there are times when it is closer to us (perigee) and times when it is farther away (apogee).
Supermoons occur about once every 14 months on average. However, Sunday night’s supermoon was extra super because the moon was even closer to Earth than usual.
At its closest approach, the moon was 221,524 miles from our planet, compared with an average distance of 238,900 miles. The last time the moon sailed this close to Earth was on Jan. 26, 1948, when it came 30 miles closer. The next time won’t be until Nov. 24, 2034, when the distance between the two bodies will be 40 miles less.
So, in honor of Sunday night's Super Moon, the Perigee Moon, I have written a piece I titled, "La Luna Passionata". If you enjoy my teaser would you please leave me a comment? You know how much I adore the attention...
|La Luna Passionata|
La Luna Passionate nestled on the lips of the water’s edge like a soft kiss and cast a reflection of blue and shimmering white gold across the bay.
She ascended the steps of the infinity pool as if floating from the bay waters and settled along the pool edge with the grace of a feather. Her skin, like liquid lava and covered in tiny droplets, reflected the moon’s embrace in thousands of glimmering sequins.
Her back, arched between her shoulders to her hips, seemed to be reaching for more of the Moon's attention. As she sighed, I smelled her perfume as the aroma rode the silver gossamer wings to where I sat.
My eyes feasted in her shadows. Her silhouette was a banquet of flowing curves: nipples hard and stretched into the moonlight crowned her breasts, alabaster round and full.
The slope of her taunt stomach to the silken slit where her thighs met was fluid, a single stroke from God’s hand on this canvas of carnal beauty.
She turned her head and extended a graceful arm while our eyes touched in a magnetic caress.
Seduced by her beckoning, I rose, and joined the Perigee Moon to feast upon her pleasures.

A nearly full moon rises above the Valley of the Gods near Mexican Hat, Utah. November will see the largest full moon since 1948, also known as the 'supermoon,' when the moon reaches its closest point to Earth.
