December 24 -- M. S. Rooney

“Forest of  Fontainebleau”

            Narcisse-Virgile Diaz de la Peña, 1867
Viewed at California Palace of the
Legion of Honor,  San Francisco
This skein of sunlight
unraveling the curves
of the dark earth
between the light trunks
draws my eye
through the canvas, until
what I started to say to you
I do not know, only know
it now seems
quite uncertain,
not quite true.
