To Catch a Setting Sun: Rough Draft of an Original Poem

I've been taking a lot of pictures lately--and hoping some of them might inspire me to write poetry. Here's a photo I took a few days ago from my bedroom window at sunset.

And here's the rough draft of a poem I just wrote for the picture. I haven't used any punctuation. I just used line breaks.

Trees stretch their bony fingers
weave them into a dark net
try to catch
the setting sun
before it slips away
before it steals the light of day
