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

In disappearing snow, golden
groggy grass appearing, fresh
sun flower seeds in the feeder
I miss you.

In opening my sun roof,
happiness of my people as we drive along
wondering about weightless blue sky
I miss you.

In raw taco salad made with walnuts,
sundried tomatoes, spices, avocados and arugula
that I want to tell you about and share,
I miss you.

In songs I am singing and love -
have you heard of  "Je Luis Dirai"
and "La Tribu de Dana?"
I miss you.

In French I am learning - your
replacement - melancholy, sunny,
stunningly human and touchable,
I miss you.

Walking around thawing Minnesota lakes,
I miss you.

In my undressing and dressing,
my laying down, moving aside
brown curtains to fall asleep under stars,
I miss you.
