ABOUT THE SUTER PALACE
Astro-photo-poem (cosmopoem) by Andrei Dorian Gheorghe

In the 1900s,
the German architect Gustav Adolf Suter
made a palace
in the Neo-Romanian-Brancovenesc style
right on the highest point in Bucharest.

On September 27, 2020,
I went up to it on a stepped street
like in a mountain town
and when I got to the top
I thought I was in another world,
in a five star system
(such as Delta Orionis, Beta Capricorni
or even HD 155448 in Cassiopeia).

But it was just the Suter Palace
transformed into
a five star heritage boutique hotel.

I went down to the other side of the “mountain”
and I had to admit once again
that my modest life revolved
only in a one-star system.
