Weekend Writing Warriors!

It's Sunday and time for the Weekend Writing Warriors mini hop! Participants post 8 sentences from a writing project, either published or unpublished.

Today I'm offering another small sampling from
Loving Leonardo - The Quest (book 2 in the ongoing series). A story taken from 2013's headlines. I combined the talking points of the day, gave them a Victorian spin, and created a polyamorous romance written with an unusual touch of reader-interactive art history.
First my 8, then details after:

Their breathy sighs and gasps filled my ears. Even the small hairs on my skin were as whiskers on a cat with which to feel their bodies in the stygian night. I maneuvered on and around my lovers. The lavender ghost of their soap mingled with their heady musk of desire, and I tasted the salt and clean sweat of exertion upon their skin. All of it: sound, taste, touch, and scent painted a picture in my imagination. They were two exquisite dreams made flesh, and I swear I saw the glow of their souls through my blind eyes. We praised one another’s perfection with an eye for detail that da Vinci himself would have surely applauded.

Tomorrow we’d find his La Scapigliata.

What just happened:

Immersed in the sensuality of Leonardo da Vinci's book, my trio decides to experience the world exactly as Leonardo da Vinci had. The artist often hindered or removed senses to enhance others. A blindfold was a favorite. Theirs too.

  1. Interesting way to revisit history. I wonder what they are really trying to achieve and if they'll get a better understanding of Da Vinci's work out of it.

    1. Thanks Linda. They're following a book pointing to hidden symbolism tucked into Leonardo's artwork. After a particularly compelling chapter, they decide if Leonardo experienced sightlessness to enhance other senses, then they would too. It's more about understanding the man the artist was.

  2. I'm blown away by your prose. You're a magician with words; a painter using her brush to express a scene.

    1. And you're a sweetheart to compliment me so. Thank you.

  3. Sounds like a blindfold helps them understand da Vinci--and get a little hands on experience with each other! Love the thought in the penultimate sentence, it's lovely.

  4. A vivid snippet indeed, loved the use of all the senses. Lovely prose, great 8!

  5. Beautiful writing. I'm intrigued by the idea of this being a three-some, foursome, or an orgy? I love the way you add the sense of smell with their soaps. Great way to pull the reader into the scene. Well done.

  6. Loved the used of description. You painted a very vivid picture.

  7. Lovely, descriptive writing! Your prose is simply amazing, your vocabulary incredible. Great 8!
