2009 was the International Year of Astronomy and the Romanian Society for Meteors and Astronomy (SARM) have published a series of some 15 different pages on their Astropoetry site.
The page celebrating the 4th Quarter of the year has a whole host of photographs, cartoons and poetry including
MOON-JUPITER CONJUNCTION OVER TARGOVISTE

The Moon and Jupiter gave again
a show in the evening sky,
a small present for those who
live in towns.

In crater deeps where
sun never reaches comet
head crashes dreams reflight

Particles hurtling towards one another
At the speed of light -
Just hope your planet isn't one of them.

"Prove it" she said "bring
me from black hole's heart Hawking

In the Epilogue Andrei Dorian Gheorghe writes
If you daily watch the skies
and admire both
the people and the heavenly bodies,
if you respect and use sciences, techniques, arts and poetry
as means for enriching
knowledge, generosity, feelings and creativity,
and if for you
the celebration of astronomy
does never end,
then you are a
REAL SKY LOVER,
my dear friend!
