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 storyA humbling abode of past gloryMemorable talks with a little game

Only friends are left to share the pain

Green parks filled with people’s dazeResponding in an amiable gazeExcitement 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.’
