About Me

WHO ARE YOU?

My name is Noor Shirazie. I was born in Pakistan and have lived in a variety of countries since then, including the U.A.E., Australia, Qatar, Bahrain, and the U.S.

I graduated in 2015 with a degree in Supply Chain Management from Northeastern University and published Into the Wildfire: Mourning Departures in April 2016. This title is now available for purchase on Amazon, Walmart, Barnes + Noble, Magrudy, Book Depository, and Alibris. I recently published Into the Wildfire: Battle Scars in December, a collection of poems about endurance (also available on Amazon, Barnes + Noble, Magrudy, Book Depository, and Alibris).

Aside from writing poetry on a daily basis, I thoroughly enjoy cooking, sketching, singing, and playing the piano.

WHAT’S THIS BLOG ABOUT?

It’s about getting inspired on gloomy days through various forms of writing. It’s about opening your mind to a variety of perspectives, embracing creativity in its many outlets, and seeing that we are as different as we are alike.

    • Thank you! I’ve actually written thousands of poems and will be posting them gradually. There are a lot to get through, haha, but I’ll add a few each day.

  1. I do not often comment on other people’s blogs, I think sometimes people, myself included speak too much about too little. However, I think that in a world full of non-poets who write poetry (like myself), you seem to be a poet. That is something very rare indeed. Perhaps you could consider publishing some of your poetry in a book; words printed on paper take on an immortality that this medium lacks. I, for one, would buy a copy.

    • Thank you so much, that means a lot! It’s something I’m definitely considering after I graduate next year. I agree with you in the sense that there’s a certain charm within a tangible book that can’t be found online. If only blogs could convey that!

      • A book appeals to the senses: the ruffle of the paper to the ears, the dusty paper and sharp ink to the nose, the smooth line of the cover to the hands, and finally, the printed text to the eyes. It compliments and draws out the words, give life to deceptively two dimensional medium. I think that is the difference. A blog can only appeal to the eyes; easily seen and easily forgotten. That is how I would explain it anyway. Good luck with your last year, I hope that it goes well.

  2. Truer words have never been spoken (or rather, typed). Printed poetry just feels more… permanent, I don’t know. You summed it up though wonderfully. Thanks again for the kind message, and all the best with you too!

  3. Your description on what the blog is about is just perfect! I’m so glad I found your blog today; it’s such a treat!

  4. Hello Noor!
    I just wanted to let you know that I have nominated you for the Blogger Recognition Award! Hope you enjoy it!
    Manpreet 🙂

  5. The way you think, is like watching a better me work out my more muddled thoughts. Both beautiful, haunting, and mystifying.
