Three Posts Using the Word Ostentatious

Hey Dear Fellow bloggers, hope your week is going fine. Here is my next attempt to write three different posts using the word “Ostentatious” –  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.

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.

In the Folds of Wilderness

As I went up to the steep wilderness
winding paths,
sudden popping obstacles,
the briers,
the shrubs brushing the legs
with a prickly feel,
I was paused many times,
halted often
and the slippery climb
forced many a time
to ditch the trail

But then the anticipation of the hilltop view,
the valiant waterfall exquisite thought,
and the feel of a breathtaking sight
gave my strives a pace
and when atop,
in the embrace of nature,
lost in the momentary blithe
and that defiant smile said it,
for after all it was worth the fight

Lonely Soul

The shadows from yesterday
were lurking on my mind,
I coaxed,
cajoled
and put forth a defiant stature
but the dark patches
refrained to leave,
exhausted I resigned
and when I calmed the chaos within
I found peace
for the mist of time
spoke to my lonely soul
and I was not alone anymore

Prompt given by the amazing Manic Sylph
