Bohemian Winter Brooch



Once upon a time there was a steel grey, ordinary flower brooch. It led a solitary life because of it bleakness. Other brooches said it made them depressive and always shooed it away.
"Can't they see past this stark façade of mine? Can't they see my glittered, shiny soul?", it cried.
 
As it was wandering the crowded corridors of the wooden jewelry box one day, it happened upon the fingers of a crafty artist. It clung onto them and begged the artist to change its fate: "Can you please crack my shell and let my bohemian heart and soul take over my barren body?"
 
"Well, I am sure I can do something about it", said the crafty artist. She took out her pom-poms and pearls, she worked her magic whirls and voila! The bohemian brooch was born!
 
"Well, now I am sure I can make somebody happy", thought the brooch happily as it went into the shop.

Dear Maya, you do know I'm no great fan of grey, but this brooch is lovely indeed. Glad you rescued it out of that ominous box!

Will you believe it Divya, that while composing the post, I tgought the same... that I stopped writing stories long ago and that I actually miss it. My real time job is squeezing out the best of me - the new, clueless and stupid school reforms have turned us the teachers into administrators. So that is taking its toll. It reflects onto my creative writing ideas. I do hope to steadily change that. Thank you for the sweetest comment.

Such happy news that the dull little grey brooch clung to your clever fingers so that she could be transformed into a brooch of colour and happiness. A fun and whimsical story, Maya. Those touches of magenta and little beads is the making of this sweet brooch.
