Scribblings and scrawls of a hopeless romantic soul


Word Prompts



A Free Verse

Fluttering wings, vibrant hues
Dancing under the sunny sky
When I look into those eyes
In my stomach they found their shrine
Scarlet cheeks— breathless
I’m swept away in a smile
Blushing ‘neath the warmth of your gaze
Restless, my heart’s on a race.

Word-High July: 30 Beautiful Filipino Words

Banner 1

Much like the colors of the skies, every language is beautiful in its own way—the way they sound and how each word fits perfectly in a poem, a story, or a musical piece. And sometimes we find ourselves wishing how delightful it would be if we could learn those languages by heart and use them in our craft.

That is why Maria of Doodles and Scribbles and Rosema of A Reading Writer haveinvited you to join their July blog event, Word-High July. They have teamed up to give you a whole month worth of prompts and since we are both #ProudlyPinay, these 30 beautiful Filipino words below will serve as the prompt for each day of the month.
