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

Your beautiful friend Maighread,
  time and timeless cast -
  There is you and memories.
The day is not her last.

I will listen to each one,
  make them mine, bring them home,
  extend them out in remembering,
your loyal friend Maighread.

I am for you, whatever you need -
  a quiet cup of camomile tea,
  arms to hold you comfortingly
company throughout your mourning.

Your sweet, dear friend Maighread,
  this day is not her last.
  There is her pristine energy,
time and timeless cast -
