Waltzing with a Wolf

With a whiff of whimsy
and wild whispers,
the gray wolf swept
one warped woman
into his warm embrace,
whooshed away webs
of shadowed woe
as they waltzed
through life.

I love how you used all the words beginning with "w" It appears the warped woman needed a bit of the wild to bring her peace.

Sherry speaks my mind! w-w-w-wow! such a comforting sound, "The Wolf Gets Married" indeed.

It would be neat to have a stanza from the point of view of the "warped woman" too.

This is a snappy reply to the challenge - I love the clever alliteration.

Alliteration is a fun approach to take, here, Laurie. Whoopie!
