Sunflower, by Gabriel Ivanescu

Motto:

depending on the Sun
we are happy people
loving starry nights

1
Winter Triangle—
cathetuses of my soul
run to Gemini

2
brief great walk?
Miss Spring arm in arm with
the sky bodyguard Orion

3
Perseus and Capricornus—
summer harmonies
of fireballs

4
autumn with changes of
colors and stars;
only Polaris the same
