Welcome to Four Lines! I have a goal I would like to write at least four lines of poetry or a haiku every day for the rest of my life. I'm excited about this challenge! Also, along with my daily poem, I will be reading at least four lines of another author's poetry. I'll try to include that here also. So I'm thinking - how difficult can it be to read and then write one poem a day? We will see! - Claudia

Here I am trying to come up with something
at 11pm when I feel like nothing.
My yawning mind can't think of anything
not even one more thing.

Four lines by another author,
Lao Tsu
(translated by Gia-Fu Feng & Jane English)

Returning is the motion of the Tao.
Yielding is the way of the Tao.
The ten thousand things are born of being.
Being is born of not being.
