My first haikus

My first ones:

my skin – your valley
lips mark their territory
sensual earthquakes

the hues of your heart
melt into my horizon
surrender awaits

earth, water, fire, air
you, me, we, eternally
some things never change

dripping divine love
eyes closed, tasting her passion
drunk on morning dew

migrant birds return
i am still in the same place
lost my direction

… and a bonus haiku 🙂

YOU :))
OR too many syllables
damn fucking haikus


Hey! I am so sorry for the absence.

Here are some random haikus. I’ve never written them before, but I was encouraged to try. I wrote approximately 30 “heart haikus”, but I’m not satisfied with them. I turned old notes into haikus and wrote a few in one sitting. Well, since “write like no one is reading” IS my motto for the year, I decided to post a few anyway. I enjoy reading haikus, but I didn’t enjoy writing them. lol. Ok, once I stopped taking it so seriously – it was fun … kind of. :)) Counting syllables was a challenge for a Finnish girl though. 🙂 I may have messed up with some words, but at least I tried.

Hope you all have a beautiful and inspiring weekend,
– Noora

  1. Yay! Haiku! 🙂
    I haven’t been doing them recently. Too busy with work & life. 😦
    (Also having difficulty trying to force Supergirl into one. I don’t think she likes haiku either… or maybe she just hasn’t forgiven me for the first one.)
    Nirvana’s my favourite also.


    1. I miss your haikus, Frank! I’ve really enjoyed the Supergirl poems too! 🙂 I think I still have a few to read. Yay. Hope life settles down for you soon. I’ve been very busy myself.


  2. So wonderful to see a post from you, Noora! Life has a way of getting busy doesn’t it? 😉 I don’t know anything about the mechanics or how they are supposed to play out, but I love these haiku’s you wrote ~ especially the first two, so sensual. Great work, thank you for sharing it. Have a wonderful weekend! ❤


    1. Julie!! Thank you so much for the visit. You know how much I enjoy your poetry and photography. Hope your weekend is filled with beauty and inspiration.


    1. “Inhaling starlight” – just WOW. In my country, it is ILLEGAL to be so talented writer. ha ha!! Honestly, I can only dream of writing such beautiful haikus. 🙂 xxxx


  3. So sensual, really great job! And you don’t have to count, it is not necessarily in English. I usually do, but I tried few days ago without counting and I think that results were better. It’s good to see you back. Thanks for the visit. 🙂


    1. Sky Vani!! One of my favorite “haikuists”! Thank you so much for stopping by. Counting syllables (and editing haikus) was definitely painful. :)) Have a great weekend.


  4. ahh, a magnificent first Haiku they are Noora, …ahem, (i kinda’ been waiting)
    for you to take the leap. they are quite challenging at first, but the more you do, you’ll find the syllable counting becomes almost second nature. more please!

    You know I like the Nirvana best 🙂

  8. Noora, I loved them!
    And you are right, we certainly should write like no one is reading.. its the same as dancing alone!!

    I have never been able to come up with haikus.. so glad that you came up with such brilliant lines in your first attempt!

    ~ Love,


  9. Hi Noora! Absolutely beautiful… ❤
    My favourite one is "Soul Bond"…
    That would be a perfect haiku in order to describe platonic Love
    Thanks for sharing your poetry!… Much love & happy week ahead to you. Aquileana 😀
