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

Her record spins,
head to tale,
head to tale,
the same.
Real or a hallucination,
it is memorized and wept well -
deep as a dream drawn,
drunk again in telling.
I listen closely, trying to be 
the still, small voice,
and if allowed,
I stop the turning,
lifting the needle for one sweet, 
spacious moment.
