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

I'm in love again,
with every color, every taste,
every texture of my salad lunch -
a work of art, like a modern,
crunchy, edible, delectable painting!
Since I love this artfilled salad
of kale, red leaf lettuce, arugula,
radishes, asparagus, carrots,
strawberries, blue cheese,
and toasted walnuts, 
spring bursting on the plate,
flavors fresh into my mouth,
chewed, moving
into my stomach,
in my blood,
nourishing, becoming me....
a breathing work of art!
Hmmm... when eating salad with love,
chewing, moving
into my stomach,
in my blood,
nourishing, becoming me...
enhancing kindness qualities!
Hypothesis taking flight.
If everyone eats with love what is
beautiful, delicious, and nutritious,
war would be obsolete,
humanity saved,
and the earth and her inhabitants would live..
die... and live again...
in harmony.
I'm in love again.
