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

Roses are amber yellow
  with thorny stems
that know T'ai Chi.
A lemon bar is tartly sweet,
  interestingly soothing
with a cup of warm tea.

Roses are a garnet red,
  with thorny stems
that know Kung-Fu.
Red lentils, onions, chilies,
  raspberries, combine
to make a spicy sweet stew.

You've sent me again
  on thorny tall stems
roses juxtaposing
love, friendship,
  ideas, manifestations,
like dinner I am composing...

Stuffed yellow peppers,
  red potatoes, tomatoes
and a luscious, lemony tart,
ladled with a design, a sauce,
  of cherries and plum wine --
roses from my heart.
