A STORY WITH “SUNDOGS”
Astro-photo-poem (cosmopoem) by Andrei Dorian Gheorghe

AndreiDGheorgheGAM360A 600

This is a pale solar halo
without the pair of bright spots
named parhelia or “mock suns”
or “sundogs”,
which I caught on
November 5, 2020, in Bucharest
and made me remember
a recent happening.

Thus, on October 18, 2020,
I dreamed “sundogs”
and I went out of my block
to see the Sun.

Disappointment:
neither solar halo nor “sundogs”.

But the dream did not lie:
finally I saw the Sun
“haloed” by a beautiful house
with “sundogs” on its balcony.
