GAM 2022 - Astropoetry Tour with Adrian Sima
By Andrei Dorian Gheorghe (text and photos), Adrian Sima (astropoem) and Florin Alexandru Stancu (design)
Former national youth laureate for astronomy and astropoetry, Adrian Sima graduated in Physics and then Theology, and now he is a priest at a church and teaches physics at a high school and math at a university.
For his astropoem I used pictures that I took on April 20, 2022.
Astropoem by Adrian Sima
Photo-scenario by Andrei Dorian Gheorghe
The one who turned the horizon into a clock
and saw the rotation of the planet
in the steps of gravity written on the sand
could feel his blood spinning
like a red bird to the heights ...
hanging from the vault of the sky,
beat like a pendulum
in the highest tower of the city...
and even if the sun,
like a flower of a long-forgotten tree,
hid in the waters of clouds,
he saw his rotation on the sand
like captive time rolls
in his childhood hourglass.
