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

A space to fill.
   I am here in the dark
at the bottom of the hill,
   looking up at the firmament,
sitting on the grass,
   waiting, waiting to hear.

Connecting flight
                   cancelled.

Where's the constellation,
  Orion?  My fearless
constellation, Orion?
  Covered with clouds,
but still there, somewhere,
  holding a shield and sword
instead of a quintessential
  cell phone.

  Waiting, worrying to hear,
I am sitting on the grass,
  looking up at the firmament,
at the mountain base,
  here in the dark with
Orion filling space.

He's probably in the
         airport Verizon store.
