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

     Not frivolity,  oh no,
  sweet is more than sweet.
It's like scones with raspberry jam,
      a kiss on the cheek,
 a call from a friend saying,
    I miss you! Let's meet!
   Every day can be sweet.

...like smelling lilacs in spring,
    a hug from your dad,
  a compliment received in
       an email or tweet.
   Every day can be sweet.

...like riding your bike at dawn,
          holding a baby,  
  giving someone directions
     to find the right street.
   Every day can be sweet.

...like fresh strawberry shortcake,
      or when your partner
says he adores you in
     his acceptance speech.
 Oh, every day can be sweet!
