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 seven hours,
I still have no flowers
no painting to frame,
no story to name.

I am in a tower,
wrestling power,
facing stone and mortar.
I might somersault down,

not my regular routine,
but there's a trampoline 
on grassy green ground
and you with a kiss

and wise encouragement.
"Let go. You can be confident."
Time was practicing spent.
Tomorrow I'll write in a tent.
