astropoem dedicated to the great astrophotographer Jean Dragesco
-by Andrei Dorian Gheorghe-

I shall jump from a crater to another
in Catena Michelson.
I shall caress
Dorsa Geikie.
I shall climb
Mons Huygens.
I shall plunge into
Rupes Altai.
I shall run in
Vallis Snellius.
I shall drink illusions from
Rima Brayley.
I shall relax in
Insula Ventorum.
I shall build a harbour in
Promontorium Taenarium.
I shall refresh in
Terra Vitae.
I shall heat in
Mare Frigoris
…And I shall find my peace in
Oceanus Procellarum.

grey light on the Moon -
heavenly meditation about
the lunar gold
-Andrei Dorian Gheorghe-

certainly the Moon
would not like to be
a satellite of Jupiter
-Andrei Dorian Gheorghe-

Crater Copernicus -
an ideal place for
-Andrei Dorian Gheorghe-


Note: Jean Dragesco was born in 1920 in Romania,
and emigrated in 1940 to France,

An asteroid was named after him in 2000.
