Waterloo Bridge

In London fog, the river stills.
In silver sleep, it cools and fills
with cobalt mist as dawn unfolds;
above the Thames, the sun bleeds gold.
Into the haze, it pours and pools
like melting opal, liquid jewels
until the brume of morning fades
to prune the sky with unseen blades
that slice the flaming clouds in two
to frame a glimpse of Waterloo.

*Inspired by Monet's painting, "Waterloo Bridge: Sun in a Fog"

    Heather, when a write flows like this you don't feel the meter, you absorb it. Perfect iambic tetrameter, perfect enjambment, but I think it is the blending of the palette of colors, the subtle haze and fog and clouds that give it that impressionist tenor that is perfect for Monet and in it's succinctness leaves the reader with, as Monet's paintings did, to daydream at the view and just relax.

    Outstanding poem! As usual, I take pleasure in a consistent rhythm and meter, and this one also boasts such amazing descriptory words that really work on the imagination!

    I like it, I come from the twin cities of Kitchener Waterloo in Ontario. That's where I lived before moving out west. Therefore the title caught my attention.

    Ahh, nice inspiration on this. Monet (I call him "Money" for my own goofy humor) was a stunning painter & artist. You did his work some justice. :) Kudos!
