BEFORE THE SUMMER SOLSTICE
(Bucharest, June 20, 2020)
Astro-photo-poem (cosmopoem) by Andrei Dorian Gheorghe

“Wake up, lazy man!” -
the Sun called out to me
from a leaf.

I had to respect his joyousness,
it was shortly before the summer solstice.

“Watch me,
I’ve always liked being on top!” -
the Sun called out to me again,
this time from a high historical tower.

I understood him,
the Sun just wanted to show
how human he can be.
