Her Power To Enamor

“Her antiquity in preceding and surviving succeeding tellurian (earthbound) generations: her nocturnal predominance: her satellite dependence: her luminary reflection: her constancy under all her phases, rising and setting by her appointed times, waxing and waning: the forced invariability of her aspect: her indeterminate response to in-affirmative interrogation: her potency over effluent and refluent waters: her power to enamor, to mortify, to invest with beauty, to render insane, to incite to and aid delinquency: the tranquil inscrutability of her visage: the terribility of her isolated dominant resplendent propinquity: her omens of tempest and of calm: the stimulation of her light, her motion and her presence: the admonition of her craters, her arid seas, her silence: her splendor, when visible: her attraction, when invisible.”

I believe James Joyce put together some of the most powerful words ever written about the Moon in his story of Ulysses. Our shared lunar beauty played trickster this month of May 2021, with a lunar eclipse just before dawn , and tossing in appearing to grow in size, coming closest to Earth for this year, almost within reach, before slipping behind the Mingus Mountains early in the mornings.
