  10. Maganda (via Ladyleemanila) Filipino word for beauty, refers to the beauty of both form and spirit.
  11. Sayang (via Hank) Malay/Indonesian word referring to a loved one. Also used to express one’s affectionate feelings to a lady – whispered softly while nibbling the ear lobe.
  12. Appraisal (via Ranted Crow); The act or result of judging the worth or value of something or someone.

As my wordles contain 12 words any additional words received will carry over into another wordle or challenge.

Now I am sure you are looking at this Wordle and thinking no way can I incorporate 10 of these! Well the good news is you don’t have to. In fact you don’t even have to technically include a single word.

You can approach this like a standard wordle challenge if you are super ambitious (slightly insane). You can also write multiple poems as to more naturally include the words if you are set on using them all. You can even create a world where these terms are all part of the vernacular, a future world perhaps where cultures and languages have blended.

Otherwise you can focus on the feeling of the word as we do in the Writing Prompt Word Challenges. For example Maganda you can write about someone’s inner beauty without using the word itself. So you can choose one (or more) word(s) to really zero in on as the theme for your piece. While it is perfectly okay for you to use your own words, please be sure to include at least one word that you did not contribute.

Choose at least 1 word from the list (the actual word does not have to appear in the poem but you must convey the meaning)

      • Oh no worries about my word – 🙂

        I was wondering what it was you were planning as per the previous one – where you were asking for words … and now, the unveiling 😉

        LOL – either way Yves – you always come up with surprises – and challenges – and stimulation – that can lead us to new directions – so 😀

  3. I am more than slightly insane — I managed to sneak in a few new words of my own.
    Great fun, and my vocabulary just keeps improving.
    At this rate, I shall never be cagestruck whence ever I go.


  4. I’m very late to this .. but what an honour to see the words I contributed up there! 🙂 I feel a lot of pride to see my language represented and even more proud to see the brilliant poets here use these words in their writing.

    Just a small note, there is no such language as “Indian”.. we have 22 official languages in India (all with their own different scripts and origins). The unofficial number goes to as high as 1652 (various dialects).

    The words I have contributed are from a language called Malayalam spoken in a state in South India, called Kerala.

    Thank you so much for including these words, it means a lot to me. I will definitely be catching up on this prompt very soon!
