Awed by her splendor
Stars near the lovely
moon cover their own
is roundest and lights
earth with her silver

NOTE: I once posted a piece called Moonmad, which took its night-title from a mysterious, chthonic Max Ernst cast bronze sculpture to which I appended a crazed, but justified, ranting series of complaints. This Sappho fragment finds (or renders) me Moon-Sane instead.
I wish I had posted this earlier and I apologize to anyone possibly interested in fishing and egg-setting moments passed. I’m happy to learn there are future June dates to pursue these activities.
This poem and these pictures right my skiff tonight.
