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

Under the gracious sun this afternoon,
trying to outrun approaching thunder 
clouds is futile.  I look up at the sky.
Allowing, accepting would be wiser.
                Rain on me.

Today my house is dark early.
This is what Moon must have felt
without us home.  She has finally
stopped her mournful meowing -
               being alone.

Yes, I am here, but also there,
of Michigan and Minnesota
a duo citizen, an artist mom. 
Sarie can't come over till Sunday.
               I miss Orion. 
             And tomorrow?
What will tomorrow bring?
Michael.  Michael of Minnesota
and more.  I smile at the thought of him.
He is a contented citizen of the world,

               the universe.
We're all citizens, awakening consciousness
of the universe.  We just don't know it.
I am of the mind, one day we will.
What will our earth be like then?
