Cosmic Multicultural Bucharest in the Pandemic (258):
GAM 2022 - Astropoetry Tour with Dominic Diamant
By Andrei Dorian Gheorghe (text and photos), Dominic Diamant (astropoem) and Florin Alexandru Stancu (design)
Former national astropoetry laureate and author of 30 books of poetry and prose, Dominic Diamant (age 87) is a pillar of the SARM astropoetry movement since the first edition of the Cosmopoetry Festival (1996).
To decorate his astropoem with pictures, I visited his garden (Dejhagascar) and a nearby church (Podeanu) on April 21, 2022.
I also tried to translate his poem from Romanian into English in a form as close as possible to the original with rhythm and rhyme.
Our friendly meeting was honored by a solar halo.
Astropoem by Dominic Diamant
Photo-scenario by Andrei Dorian Gheorghe
In our thirst for deification
we are advancing to conquer space
and each has a purpose in fulfilling
this sublime goal in our great race
Yes, we are heroes in our struggles
(I wonder if there is more to discuss)
we follow our call among the stars
to embody the Creator in us
