Haikus From the Heart

Updated on June 6, 2015

Writing poems is passion and I have a separate poem blog, but recently my interest is to write Haiku’s. A Haiku is a form of Japanese poetry that has 3 lines. The first line is 5 syllables, the second line is 7 Syllables and the last line 5 Syllables.

I write a Haiku a day, just for the fun of it and share some below:


¸.·*☆ Haiku 1

Children are Angels

to be Loved and not Tortured

Abuse - Filthy gain!

(There is an alarming increase on Child Abuse and it's painful to hear about / read about on the News).


¸.·*☆ Haiku 2

In the Nick of time

Everyone left, you walked in

Angel in Disguise.

(I wrote this on reflection of people who have stood by me through challenges).


¸.·*☆ Haiku 3

Calories....Who cares?

I'll have my cake and eat it

Sweet tooth, my weakness.

(One of those moments when I craved cakes and chocolates. You probably do too?)


¸.·*☆ Haiku 4

Open heaven’s door

Show me a glimpse of your smile

The heart finds comfort.

¸.·*☆ Haiku 5

Gone Since Forever

Angels gave her no Notice

Heart cries “I love you”

(This is for my beautiful Mum. I wrote it because I miss her so much).


¸.·*☆ Haiku 6

Piercing the darkness

of the thoughts inside his head.

Whispering Angel.


(I wrote this for teens. Many hear “voices" in their head telling them to end it all. Sadly, some do but some are fortunate to have a friend/family member talk them out of it).

¸.·*☆ Haiku 7


Haiku 7 - I had such a hectic time this week and put my feelings in this Haiku. Written on Friday evening. (◕‿◕)

If you want to keep up with them, type #HaikuLE on Twitter. It will search and bring them all up on a page including any new Haiku's I publish on Twitter.

Thank you for reading. ~ Namaste ~

      I love haiku! It teaches how to choose words carefully and how keeping our thoughts concise is actually more powerful than long rhetoric. Love it!

      Cute, sweet, short haikus - and I think I'm into the cake/calories one too as it expresses exactly how I feel.

      Nice variety of Haiku Poetry. Isn't it fun and healing to write in this form? I love it too! By the way, how do you get those cute little stars next to your poems? I like how you bold the Haiku-it makes it stand out more and easier to read and fun to look at. Nice work my friend. Voted up and hit all buttons except funny. Hub Blessings :)

      All beautiful! Number 4 gets my vote because of its universal appeal, but number 1 is a rival because the subject matter deserves our attention. I admire this form of poetry because it says so much in a few words; your poems are good illustration. Thanks for sharing your passion.

      I've written some, not many, Elena, but I go to many poetry readings and people do them. If I remember rightly, poethepoet has done some in the correct Japanese way with nature included. As to me, I started writing at 4 years old and have always resisted the traditional. My nature is to create and I feel from the Ether, God or my meditation.

      When I read of the great spiritual poets, I find that they are all like me. They know of the rules, but rarely follow them. Much peace.

      @Jodah Thanks John. I'm glad you enjoyed them and thanks for voting up too.

      @JaiWarren - Hello Jai, lovely to see you. Sorry to read about what happened in your Community and well done on the brilliant idea of an Annual Concert to raise awareness. I pray no more fresh talents will be buried. Hope you are doing well in general. I hear from Shari once in a while, hope you do too. ~ Take Care. :-)

      @billybuc Thanks so much Bill. Lovely to see you again. Best wishes.

      @Manatita Thanks for the feedback. I've only just started writing them and have often thought that something was missing and where the Japanese connection came into it. I checked some online, for examples but you have filled in the gap. I will pop over to your profile to see if you wrote some and hope to include the bit about nature in part 2.

      I appreciate you stopping by. Best Wishes.

      @James Wolve Hello James, lovely of you to stop by.

      Hope all is well.

      This haiku hits home. It's not only for teens but for anyone that feels there's no hope! I live in a community that is predominantly artists and musicians. We've lost several talented individuals because they were at their ropes end. Instead of turning to family and friends they took action. So sad... We established a help line for anyone in that situation. And have an annual benefit concert to raise awareness.

      Well done E... Hope all's well!

      Extremely beautiful Haiku's and shows talent. My favourite is Haiku 4. I have always suspected that Haiku's originate from the ancient Rishi's and Seers. They wrote very short and powerfully meaningful sentences called Sutras, a bit like the Beatitudes of our Christ and what we call aphorisms today. Like my poems (smile)

      I chose 4 for that deeply profound spiritual reason.

      Today's Haiku can be freestyle or traditional. They also include sweetness, beauty and fun. You are very close to the Japanese style and your format is correct. I've actually seen this definition in competitions.

      All great of course but they leave out the bit about nature which the Japanese didn't: a frog, a flower, scenery, water, etc ..

      From 4 to the finish is much closer in terms of spiritual, ethereal or esoteric truth. In love and Light. - Manatita
