Prodigal – Three Versions

Hey Folks – Hope you all are having a great Sunday. Once again I tried taking three different attempts to the word Prodigal. I am summarizing them below. Let me know your thoughts

First Take – Prodigal 

The classic paradigm of having enough dough – 

should we be prodigals,
or should we consider
becoming a thrift spender
worrying about some future stormy gale

Second Take – Prodigality

If we can show our prodigality and extravaganzas on helping the less privileged one, the world will inch towards a better place to coexist

Third Take – Prodigality was Insignificant 

She flaunted her Hermes bag
with a sense of pride

And let her Baccarat perfume
wore her long slender neck
making everyone run wild

The Givenchy gown graced her demeanor
giving her appearance
a shade above some divine touch

The Argyle pear cut ring pink glare
was dwarfing any other shades
that existed in the bright or the twilight

She was an allure,
an occult,
an epitome of seraphic grace

Yet despite such display of extravaganzas
the prodigality remaining insignificant,
for the world never took notice of anything
but her elegant ethereal presence
