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

Writing laying down
half in a dream.
Horizontal lines,
pull the blanket up,
hear wind from the open window
and a lullaby -
Winkin, Blinkin, and Nod singing
in their boat a lovely, lilting harmony.
Michael stands at the bow accompanying on his clarinet.
The song done, he disembarks,
climbing through my window.
Lines lift up the blanket.  
He lies next to me.
Sweetly, slowly 
kissing him,
words fall asleep.
