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

Hi!  My friend!  I wave at you, throw you a kiss.
A kiss never stays on one cheek, one person's lips.
A kiss travels around the world, touching hands,
noses, foreheads, feet, earth's ground,
trees bark, rings inside, leaf adorned.

I do not need to know you
for you to feel my kiss.
It is the kiss of your sister and brother,
though I am a light tan, the color of autumn wheat.
You are light brown, color of milk chocolate,
wet beautiful clay a million miles
and one flight away.

Hi!  My friend!  I wave to you, throw you an kiss.  Bow.
Oh... happy namaste to you.
A kiss never stays on one cheek.
It travels around the world.
