MAVROGHENIS’ MOON
Astro-photo-poem (cosmopoem) by Andrei Dorian Gheorghe

Nicolae Mavroghenis was another martyr
of Eastern Christianity
who ruled in Wallachia - the Romanian Land
in the end of the 18th century,
and an eccentric character:
he made a philanthropic hospital
and a remarkable church,
on the one hand,
and used to walk obsessively through Bucharest
(around the parallel 45!)
in a reindeer-drawn carriage,
and gave an aristocratic title to his horse,
on the other hand.

A few images with the Moon
(June 23, 26 and 27)
and the artistic reproduction
of the natural satellite
sculpted at the entrance to his monastery
(which I saw again on July 4, 2020)
directed me to a fantasist supposition:
probably Mavroghenis thought wrongly that
the reindeers are flying beings
that carry Santa Claus through Europe,
and he bought a couple just because
he wanted to fly to the Moon!

My conclusions for
this pseudo-demonstration
consist of the First Quarter Moon (June 28),
a few leaves and a single word:
aspiration.
