A 100 CLAPS


A 100 CLAPS
Melvin Banggollay


I offer nothing but 100 claps
for those who had gone 100 laps
of poems so fine with 100 marks
of beauty's touch full of 100 sparks.

I share my joy more than 100 puffs
with glittering sunshine of 100 rafts
writing in the sea 100 set of poetry
bellowing with 100 percent humility.

Be inspired to go more 100 miles
to share the magic of 100 smiles
not only to build nest of 100 friends
but to amend troubles of 100 friends.
