Wisdom From The Woods: Life Lessons Learned from being around a Seductress

Wisdom from the Woods… Life lessons learned from being around a seductress.

I’m seduced by the seasons of West Virginia. Between the innocence of spring, sizzle of summer and sparkle of winter is the brazen spectacle of fall. The love of my life gets dolled up in scintillating shades of crimson, ginger and platinum streaked with brown. Her bosoms adorned with fall finery, my painted lady is irresistible. She begs for attention in wild and wonderful ways. Suitors come from all over to watch my scarlet harlot strut her stuff. Her suggestive show reminds me where we’ve been together and prepares me for what’s next. Am I jealous of her admirers? On the contrary. She’s far more naked and exposed in winter. Her reputation, though, is surely undeserved. When something’s so beautiful, people seek flaws. She’s faithful to me, even when I stray. I find comfort in her embrace. And I’m not afraid to be vulnerable with her. Our happiest days are ahead of us. I want to wake up every day with her. They say, date a vixen; marry a virgin. I’ve never cared what “they” say. So, West Virginia, will you marry me?
