Everything Is Going To Be All Right

If anything propelled us forward on the 2017 Just Walk to Jerusalem, it was this poem by Derek Mahon. Stepping into the unknown, on a journey whose destination was completely out of our control.

Everything Is Going To Be All Right

‘Everything Is Going To Be All Right’ by Derek Mahon
Seeds of Hope — Day 6 (25th March, 2020)

How should I not be glad to contemplate
the clouds clearing beyond the dormer window
and a high tide reflected on the ceiling?
There will be dying, there will be dying,
but there is no need to go into that.
The poems flow from the hand unbidden
and the hidden source is the watchful heart. 
The sun rises in spite of everything
and the far cities are beautiful and bright.
I lie here in a riot of sunlight
watching the day break and the clouds flying. 
Everything is going to be all right.
