Shahrazade's Wedding, Part XX

"The Beowulf of Wedding Planning" -Actonbell

Listen to the story in ruined Cyrenaica.


The Prattler is having formatting issues. That was fun, though, right?


Or, read the story among the Berbers.

"a wink at each of his men.... I think we're the ones being winked at.

Wonderful episode. This is so much fun.

TLP said...

And FIRST! All others having tired of checking and re-checking your blog today....

actonbell said...

It was the wink AND the nectar of her perfume, on this first and last acquaintance with Leili:)
I wish I could visualize these dresses!

Doug said...

TLP, first suits you although the competition's light today.

Actonbell, if only I knew a thing about clothes. Remember the guards were sent back for the various colored silks and, um, picture the dresses from Cana in those colors and we're there.

Never underestimate the power of a wink.
Especially the wink of a beautiful, well perfumed woman.

It's good to know that Leili has her dress. It was quite an ordeal to get it. Taylor came through! Or was it the tailor that came through for her?

:-)

Awed, the guards stood as
the princess rescued herself
with her wits and a wink.

mireille said...

Um, any idea what that perfume was? Or where it can be purchased? xoxo

Doug said...

JD, would you wear a dress your son made?

Quill, A thousand words
Have already brought us peace
None written as haiku.

Mireille, is there a Persepolis? It might be that.

mireille said...

"Historical Background of Perfume & Perfume Manufacturing in Iran
By: M. Hossein Abrishami...In stone images of Persepolis Darius is shown while sitting on a nice chair with two scent bottles or incense bones in front of him, and Xerxes is standing behind him..." Boy, you are good. xoxo

Doug said...

I'm better than good, Mireille. I'm lucky.

quilly said...

Doug, I am confused.
Wasn't my haiku wanted?
You did ask for it.

Doug said...

Quilly, well you know
That the art of the Haiku
Nettles Erato.

G said...

Sounds like the dress for my wedding :) Loved this episode - I too wish there were pictures of the dress.

quilly said...

It boggles the mind.
Erato, weaver of love,
And The Dawg equate?

Cooper said...

Divine as always.
Your research skills, and or imagination, surpass mine, as does your storytelling of course.

Doug said...

g, your guess is as good as mine. Bill Blass I ain't, whoever that is.

Quilly, consider
Eros is the Greek God of love
Erato, just a muse.

Nonsense, Cooper. Pretty sure I didn't win by research.

quilly said...

Erato named for Eros,
Wove the strands of lover's lives,
Until a sister snipped.

Minka said...

That Kassim needs to get "in touch" with a few more women. maybe you could show him Tuesday's word ;)

Bugger, I can't hear you read this story. Part of the fun goes away.

I believe the final episode is coming up next Saturday? Well, everything has its season I guess.
