Spring Spreads Her Petals and Summer Kisses the Land on the Mouth


Beltane has been described in as many ways as there are people who celebrate the frolicsome day. The words sex, fertility, beginning of summer… are often used when speaking of it. I feel Beltane is love and lust that can be shared with another, felt with the earth, or just enjoyed in the company of one’s creative self.

I never thought Beltane could also be a kind of magic that leaves the soul wide-eyed and the body panting. Then a few days ago, I went to see my Piano Man conduct a musical. I’ve always loved to watch him in front of a piano or leading an orchestra—there is something erotic about a man who makes music happen with a wave of his hands or a few strokes of his fingers. But I digress… Near the end of the show, I looked away from the actors and focused on my Piano Man’s back.

He was fully clad in black. He spread his arms wide, the left above his head and the right about waist height. My mind’s eyes saw his forearms, shoulders and back muscles flex under his clothes. My body felt his hands play each note on my skin. The music got louder on my flesh. And in my soul, my Piano Man became a dark phoenix made of song. I burst into tears; not the cute tears inspired by touching art, but fat sobs that shook my body to its core.

“I know,” said an elderly lady who sat next to me, “such a beautiful song.”

I nodded, dabbing my eyes with the tissue she handed me. I didn’t have the heart to tell her that I hadn’t heard the song. That it was the man—not the music—who ripped those shuddering cries out of my heart. That I was feeling like Nature must feel every Beltane: ready for Spring to spread her petals, for Summer to kiss the Land on the mouth, for all living things to get hot and wild…   

I would tell you what happened after my Piano Man and I found a place where we could take our clothes off without getting them dirty, but Blogger would probably blush and die of prudery. I guess I can say that there was some Bailey’s Irish Cream, some champagne, lots of moaning and screaming, and there was love.

Before my satiated body passed out (like it’s only proper), I remember thinking, Happy Beltane to me…  
Happy Beltane, my Wicked Luvs.
May the lusty fires of Nature’s love burn hot and wild in all who wish it ;-)

  7. Music is indeed a strong aphrodisiac, especially when spurred on by the fiery energies of Beltane. Happy Beltane to you, indeed...I bet it becomes Piano Man's favorite holiday now.

    1. Beltane is my favorite holy day. I love All Hollow's Eve and Midsummer, but there is something about seeing Nature reclaiming her greenery and her vibrancy that gets deep in my bones! Happy Beltane to you, too, dear Francie ;-)

      I look forward to sharing my adventures with the Little Princess and my Piano Man, too. Wait until I tell you about the sign on her bedroom door. It's a hoot!

    2. For a romance reader and aspiring writer, its a bit odd that I don't include private sexual stuff about me and hubby. His request. ;) But we did celebrate a bit early.

      Delete
    3. I don't think it's odd at all. Private is private, you know? Especially when other people are involved. This might sound extreme, but I've actually asked people who I've dated if they are bothered by the fact that if we get together I will share my life and theirs by association. No one ever said no. And I would not consider a relationship with someone who did. I would make him miserable, and he would get on my last nerve lol

      Delete
    4. It doesn't matter to me. But early on in our relationship he asked that I not discuss private matters with others because they are special and should be kept sacred and between us. I can see his point. Though I have broken that rule once or twice, its one I generally try to keep to. When I did break it, names and some minor details were changed since I was writing fiction after all. ;)

      He doesn't care if I share other details. But sex is just one thing he likes to keep in the bedroom.

    5. Fiction is definitely best when it comes with reality in it ;-)

  13. I wondered if you would try to reconnect with your Piano Man.

  14. I feel like I've missed something significant that happened prior to this point. ;) I might be going senile, a bit early for that, but .....

    Happy Beltane!
