Ariadne writes:”We are honoured to present the third letter by the award winning photographer and poet  Ang Jaypee Belarmino. He has been a great supporter of World Poetry Canada International sharing his photographs and poetry with the World Poetry family. Jaypee is also doing both the cover and the photos in our upcoming World Poetry Peace e-book.  We would like to give him our greatest appreciation and thanks.”

 Jaypee writes: “It is with great honor and pleasure to share this occasion with you, dear members of the World Poetry Youth Team. In this gathering, I see poets and artists as individuals sharing their passion to create, to inspire and to celebrate life. But what makes me proud of you most is that as creative minds, all of you are here to work as a team in bringing your sublime talents to serve the world. It is in this highest purpose that we come to realize that there is more to art and poetry. You are all here because you are dreamers and you are fighting for your dreams. Through your genius, show the world what art and poetry stand for. 

Love. Hope. Passion. These are all why we artists write and create. As we are constantly faced by our inner struggles, we choose to fight because we have a life to live. And only a life that burns with love, with hope and with passion, is a life worth living for. 

So go out there, speak your minds out, make a stand and make your voices heard, because only a life shared with others and for others, is a life worth dying for.”

World Poetry Proudly Presents the Hope for the Future! Sophia Gabrielle from the Philippines!

 Ariadne writes: We are so honoured to present this talented young poet and artist. She will be the hope of our future. Happy International Peace Day to all!

Sofia Gabrielle is a seven-year old poet, artist and honor pupil from the Philippines. She has shown intense fascination with the literary and visual arts when she was just five years old, composing poetry in Filipino and English languages, doing abstract art, painting landscapes and drawing her version of family portraits. As a poet, Sofia Gabrielle, likes to write about love for God, for family and for the country. She has developed a sense of patriotism at an early age and would often speak about unity, peace and hope. While this little genius likes dedicating her poetry to her dad, she enjoys making artworks for her mom. She loves to draw flowers, mountains and portraits of a happy family both in realist and surrealist presentations.  Gabbie has recently started taking piano lessons, proving once more that her talents are indeed vast and limitless. 

1. Flower

you are my flower
the greatest love forever
and if i smell you
your scent so clever
but stay safe all day
even your love
is on your way.

2. The greatest is love.

The greatest of these is love
so if you miss someone you love
talk to the star
and wish for the one
so the heart beats with love

3. Totoong Filipino

ang pagmamahal 
ng tao ay maganda
sundin ang aralin at sundin ang pagiging makabayan
at gawin ito sa pagmamahal
ng pilipinas
at ituring 
ito na magandang tungkulin.

4. Ang kapayapaan sa pilipinas

katahimikan at kapayapaan
ay tungkulin sa ating bansa
huwag itong suwayin
kung gusto mong gawin
ang tamang tungkulin.
