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

In my house resides a dove,
  a connoisseur of conversation,
a source of humor and elation.
  Many a man has disapproved,
some have asked me to remove
  this bird who flaps her white-sky wings,
preens herself, struts and sings -
  flies around without a cage,
perches in meditation like a sage.
  I let her out, a rebel set free.
She knows every branch of every tree,
  glides on air, the sky her stage.
I have learned what it is to love
  for in my house resides a dove.
