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

   Birds gently woke me this morning,
as if kindly kissing my cheek and singing,
  "Wake up! Wake up Lady Annabelle!"

On my walk, these feathered beings
     flew all around me, circling,
in front, behind, hopping at my feet,
perched on the mailbox a foot away,
         high above my head.
   How did they know I needed
       a flock of birds today!
     One bird I see as sacred.
This morning...
           I must be in heaven.

  Wouldn't it be bliss to wake each morning
to birds kindly kissing my cheek and singing,
  "Wake up! Wake up Lady Annabelle!"
