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

I yearn for green,
green grass to unfurl
and break this world
of white, white snow.

sometimes soft as Onnie's ears,
Moonbeams paws,
rose petals -
sometimes hard as a baseball,
Navajo to learn,
time to understand -
sometimes gentle as healing hands,
beautiful as a single willow in the sun
or, my sister, Clair de Lune -
sometimes sour as a key lime -
sometimes sweet as chocolate chip cookies.

Turn your alarm on!
Carpe diem!
Did you brush your teeth?
Everything ready for school tomorrow?
I love you.

I love you too, Mom.

To Sir Michael

I love you.
Even what I do not like,
  I love.
Blessed me,
  I like you eternally too.
You are Summer
  all year long,
even when I trudge
  through Minnesota snow.
