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

Slide down sun beams
to hug trees every day!
T'is possible!

We write her two lists -
a wonderful self list,
and a gratitude list.

Lovely like corn silk,
growing stalks of corn,
golden, from her mouth
not mine. 

She asks, "Are you for real?"
She lives in a Chevy truck.
I know she is real.

We envision her in her garden,
past and future, in her own home,
safe and welcoming...

In her wonderful self list...
she is first a nurturing mother.
She gives to strangers in need,
loves sitting under stars,
discovering worlds through a telescope.

We talk, she surrounded by trees,
me in a mountain of glass and concrete.
Tomorrow we can add 
to your lists too, I tell her.

I'm starting one of my own.
I slide down sun beams
and hug trees.
