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

Joy is being in every moment,
none excluded, I know.
  From Dana, I growl, emit nonlanguage
sounds.  It is a way of helping the universe
to evolve.
                           Skeptics, you baboons!
It is stepforward into silliness.

  "Grrrrr.." I say when she glares, a volcano
ready to spray lava into the room,
   because she'll remember her comedian self.
Suddenly she smiles leaning forward,
an eruption thwarted, and I hear her rumble,
a low human "grrrr..."

All is right in the world.
