Rico is 4, Miguelle is 3…both kids are born in Singapore from a Filipino dad – Adig and a Chinese mom – Michelle. I have never met them in person but I have seen much of them through the lenses and the flashes of their dad’s camera and that’s how I got inspired not only once but twice to scribble my admiration in poetry and to put into words my thoughts about them and how they remind me of my own nephews and nieces during their childhood days where I used to be a baby-sitter to them.
Such adorable little creatures whose beauty are elaborately captured in the art called photography. I may have seen pictures so craftily and skillfully taken in the past…but never had I seen such awe-inspiring subjects that even awakened that slumbering poet soul of mine.
Below is a poem inspired by this angel the very first time I took sight of her photographs.
how sweet…how lovely…how angelic
… her eyes reflect the innocence
and the beauty of childhood
… her face mirrors the candid delight
and the purity of heart
as the lenses capture
she stirs my poetic heart
that i may inscribe
in words…in rhyme…in poetry…
