I visited the site "100WordStory" the other day and found this photo prompt. At "100WordStory" they publish all types of writing as long as the length is exactly 1oo words. Folks are invited to post, in the comments, their 100 word take on the photo. I came up with the poem below.

Untitled, 1/19/2016

She cast her nets into the night sky,
Hoping to snare a constellation, or maybe two.
And again in the early morning
To catch a nest of clouds.

Collecting can mean empty after empty
Before even a scrap is saved.
Patience and Perseverance, the sisters,
Send encouragement by sparrow, bird after bird.

Jars of fog, tins of songs, pouches of dreams
All line the unseen walls,
While categories outnumber labels
Infinity to none, uncounted to zero.

She cast her nets into the night sky,
Hoping to trap the lightning
And again at gray dawn
To drag thunder from the expanse.

Such good a photograph. It reminds me of the stars in the sky and the galaxy. I am truly amazed by how wonderful God's creations and his mind is. I am not a poet but I can compose songs. But when I see beautiful things like this, I just makes me feel good inside that I get to experience and see all of God's creations.

God's creation is indeed wonderful. We cannot compare any other thing to those ones that God has created. Especially us, humans. We are the most beautiful creation that God has ever performed. God has given us the ability to think as He is. The yes to see, to ears to hear. And because that we are wonderful compared to others, God has also given us the burden to take care of the other creation. Sad that people now are being irresponsible. Earth is slowly destroying due to negligence of people. We have to take stand. We still have chance. We should not leave this wonderful place empty and dark.

I like the message of this poem because I can very much relate to it. The poem talks about a girl who is dealing with a lot of problems in her life. Though she seems hopeless, she cast her fears aside and hope for the best because that's the only thing that's keeps her going in life. Many times in our lives, we will feel like we are being burdened by other people's problems. We feel as if we have no one to share our thoughts with. We become suffocated by our negative thoughts. But remember that all of the problems we experience will not last for a lifetime. Sooner or later, we will see the solution that God has for us and we will thank Him because through the problems we have encountered in life, we became way stronger and wiser.

I do want to become a writer someday. I have realized that being able to put your feelings into words is something really amazing. When I write, I can say that I was able to find peace. For me, writing is a gift. I just wish that I will be able to pursue this dream. I want to write some poems just like the poem above. It was so deep and wonderful. Thank you for sharing.
