Lithograph – A Thought

He embossed her name on his heart like an emblem, and the bleeding veins often shone through his pensive smile as he displayed his time-worn lithograph with vengeance on his mind

Ostentatious – A Thought

Ostentatious – A Poem

Oh, you obnoxious soul, 
a walking terror 
without any iota of heart, 
you use your ostentatious charm 
to sway people to your advantage 
and never miss a chance 
to portray your vicious self 
and whenever you desire 
you abandon the person 
once you called a soulmate 
but have you heard about a thing called Karma, </span
for soon
I am sure it will accost you
and show you the real face of the purported side of life
that you so deserve

Ostentatious – A Flash Fiction 

Crawling her thoughts in the crevices of her heart she died a thousand deaths every day, and those nights when she was in the company of her miscreant mind, she battled several torrid times. Yet every morning she woke up, put her make up, displayed a brave face and much against her wish she wore that ostentatious smile. And she survived

Three Posts Using the Word Nosegay

Hey Dear Fellow bloggers, hope your week is going fine. Here is my next attempt to write three different posts using the word “Nosegay” –  A Thought, a poem, and flash fiction. I am providing links to all the three posts below. Let me know your views and thoughts.

Always appreciate your presence here. Stay Charming and Beautiful.

Nosegay – A Thought

The feel of yesteryears rush through my veins when the scent of your wild nosegays casually brushes my heart

Nosegay – A Poem

An uncalled longing,
the gyrations of many submerged thoughts,
blooming of a few dormant smiles
and craving of a million defiant hearts,
all happens at once
when the blinding fragrance
of some incessant nosegay
erupts my long lost love

Nosegay – A Flash Fiction 

A loner I was, and a peripatetic soul, never rested at one place, in search of something that my heart never conjured. From crowded streets to desolate places, I traversed all without much respite, for an unruly restlessness crowded my mind. And in search of nothingness, I became a vagabond. Then one day as the fragrance of some nosegay wrapped around the waist of a damsel drove me wild. And I followed her along, behind the boulders, across the mountains and in the bed of the ocean,  it was peace at last.

Uxorious

His uxorious outlook has now turned to obscurity, for the love he thought what bonded them was confused with lust and like iron rusting over time the covet vanished so did his uxoriousness

Can You See?

My thoughts
though smeared
yet has an vivid artistry
portraying love,

But to see
such shimmering brilliance
bring some aberrant eyes
for my love is not a display
for dead souls

Three Posts Using the Word Inkhorn

Hey Dear Fellow bloggers, hope your week is going fine. Here is my next attempt to write three different posts using the word “Inkhorn” –  A Thought, a poem, and flash fiction. I am providing links to all the three posts below. Let me know your views and thoughts.

Inkhorn – A Thought

Inkhorn – A Poem

You impose your pedantic nuances
on my valiant mind
and drag me to your societal bullpen
preaching me about how to live life in reticence
and whenever I open my mind
you put your guards up
shielding to absorb any sensible opinions
for you put a blind
and today I break free
from your pretentious cage
escaping from the inkhorn
that you gloriously define

Inkhorn – A Flash Fiction 

The evening shadows crawled into every visible space of the castle with a tinge shade of grayness. The king with his courtiers assumed their designated positions without uttering a word. The silence prevailed, invariably screaming with an obnoxious eerie. The miasma of discomfort clouded the aura and the court, though looked grandeur, yet appeared like a death knell.

The enemies had invaded their land from every possible direction and they were glaringly close to the town’s outermost periphery moat. The rule book said to put their defensive guards on until the first moat is breached. There were three more such moats the enemy had to breach before they could reach the castle and each moat infested with crocodiles in plenty. The king’s oracle advised to break the age-old inkhorn but the king vehemently denied. A sad affair for the kingdom would soon regret the King’s pedantic thoughts.

Churlish – A Thought

 

The wise never displays churlishness even when they rage in anger, for the prudent never reacts in haste
