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

We gather together with a feast of favorite foods: pepper
olive tapenade, artichoke garlic - with twice the garlic - dip,
toasty french bread, shrimp cocktail, lemon tarragon turkey,
walnut cranberry dressing and orange sauce, vegetarian gravy with
converting-carnivore-capabilities, rum apple cider with extra rum!,
velvet pumpkin sweet pecan cheesecake and celestial chocolate truffles.
I wish all people could share Thanksgiving abundance every day!
I wish all people could share love, acceptance, joyful repartee,
tranquility.  Ideologies differ as seasons around this table, city, state,
country, continent, hemisphere, world.  This exquisite, living world.
I believe one shared holy day of love on earth by all is all we need for
permanent peace.

Lines from The Course in Miracles:
"There is no order of difficulty in miracles.
One is not harder or bigger than another. 
They are all the same. 
All expressions of love are maximal."  
And... 
"Miracles are thoughts.
