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

Sara Eve, this is your mother
who gave birth to you
miraculously free of pain,
and in less than a hour.

I hope you're reading,
so you will call or text
(like you said you would)
to inform me that the date
with the young man you've just met
was incredible, interesting, fun, and that...

"No, Mom, he didn't hit me on the head,
steal my car, strand me at the wine bar,
or look unlike his oo laa laa picture.
And, Mom, I'm ok, will be over Wednesday
and will tell you all about him!"
