Through the Lens: Under the Sky

Through the Lens is a recurring photography and poetry series that champions creativity and collaboration. In this edition, we invited a Macao photographer and a Hong Kong-based poet to share their perspectives.

A bud waits for the sun, opens its arms,
Its parent ascends in resilience
Sense of belonging is like rooted plants,
A secure feeling when holding hands

Old shophouses narrate a story
A humbling abode of past glory
Memorable talks with a little game
Only friends are left to share the pain

Green parks filled with people’s daze
Responding in an amiable gaze
Excitement bright, dancing in the eye,
A oneness of community under the sky

Little help when the body turns weak,
A slowdown in life as it completes,
Contemplating identity it tells thee:
‘Age singles out but doesn’t restrict me.’
