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

When I open my morning eyes
I may choose to see yesterday, 
last week's friendly, kindnesses,
past grieved memories of pain and stress,
repeating the same scenes again and again.
I wonder how my day will be.

When I open my morning eyes
I may choose to see tomorrow,
a critical interview plays in my mind,
worrying of what to say, to wear, and
if my experience matches the job.
I wonder how my day will be.

Or when I open my morning eyes
I may choose presence and only see
and sense the good surrounding me -
the colors, sounds, smells, intuitions -
gently waving thoughts away.
I wonder how my day will be.
