TRIBUTE TO BOB EKLUND (1998-2021)
Astro-photo-poem by Andrei Dorian Gheorghe and Florin Alexandru Stancu (design)
(Author’s note: I took the pictures below in August 2021)
As an astro-haiku expert,
he founded the Astropoetry Blog
when he was 82 years old,
becoming a world leader in astropoetry.
I remember with much pleasure
our dialogues by email
for the good of astropoetry.
I was convinced he was immortal.
That's why when I walk through the solar system
with my own rocket
I'm sure I'll find him
in a sunspot,
or in a lunar crater,
or even in Jupiter’s red spot
just writing a new astro-haiku.
