FOR THE TARA RIVER CANYON

19 July 2014 was a special day for me:
I began it in Belgrade
(the Capital of Serbia and the closest Capital placed west of Romania,
only 120 km distance of Timisoara - the 3rd largest Romanian city)
and I ended it in Montenegro;
I began it with the Last Quarter Moon’s equilibristics in Serbia
(followed by the equilibristics of the morning twilight)
and I ended it with the Sun’s equilibristics in the Tara River Canyon.
So I started from Belgrade,
thinking of my own future equilibristics in the Tara River Canyon
(the largest in Europe,
and nicknamed the “tear of Europe”).
Then I went to Montenegro on the classical road
which connects the last two republics of the former Yugoslav Federation.
On the bank of the last Serbian lake,
a pretty goddess appeared and said to me:
“Because you love the sky,
from now on
even the Sun will protect your road.”
Soon after that
I entered the Montenegrin territory
and I saw the amazing canyon adorned by a genial architectural piece,
the Durdevice Bridge,
made in between 1937 and 1940.
I continued my road through the canyon
the Sun followed me.
Was that pretty girl a solar muse?
I think so
just because I have remained with a wonderful memory.
It’s all I know!
Finally, the Sun lowered to lighten other territories,
leaving me to find alone
the… Black Mountain!
