Nocturne in Blue & Silver 1872-78
of James McNeill Whistler

By Alan Catlin

Dark foundering
landscape

where all
the rivers

of the mind
converge

in shadows;

a clock face
without

hands in last
discernible

light

nocturne in blue n silver james whistler

Process: During a three and half year period I wrote little else but poems on Art ranging from Turner to extreme forms of Modern Art. The poems included are from the Impressionistic period.

Editor’s note: Watch this space for the second poem tomorrow.

Alan Catlin has published dozens of chapbooks and full length books of prose and poetry on a wide variety of subjects. His latest forthcoming chapbook of poetry is from Night Ballet Press, Beautiful Mutants. He is the poetry editor of the online poetry journal Misfitmagazine.net.
