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

True religions are like holy dishes,
disparate, kindred,  -
as God and His creations create -
delicious and lovingly
placed on One sacred buffet -
One eternal table,
where all gather
in kindness, contented.

We do not differ like stones and air.
We are like a pair of celebrating
hands clapping or folded in prayer.
Here we laugh, sing, dance,
share our food, drink water or wine,
toast to truth, beauty, differences
and similarities,
beyond boundaries or time.

True religions are like holy dishes,
disparate, kindred, -
as God and His creations create -
delicious and lovingly
placed on One sacred buffet -
One eternal table,
where all gather
in kindness, contented.
