Views of Charing Cross Bridge
after Claude Monet

By Alan Catlin

Evanescent
sunlight

on River
Thames –

Later a density
of fog

first blue-grey
then darker

still

no longer
visible:

Houses of Parliament
Charing Cross Bridge

men in skiffs
swept away

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.

Editor’s note: Watch this space for poem three 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.
