Sunflower, by Gabriel Ivanescu

depending on the Sun
we are happy people
loving starry nights

Winter Triangle—
cathetuses of my soul
run to Gemini

brief great walk?
Miss Spring arm in arm with
the sky bodyguard Orion

Perseus and Capricornus—
summer harmonies
of fireballs

autumn with changes of
colors and stars;
only Polaris the same
