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
…Derek Mahon.

“Clouds are clearing beyond the dormer window” as spring finally approaches….“the sun rises and everything is going to be all right” in weather as well as in the trials of everyday life

Watercolour of stormy seas, retreating clouds, and breaking light, imagined as in a dream…Arches Not Paper..

    Today is the first day of sun after so much snow and rain. Sometimes the weather does make me wonder if it is a reflection of life or what to expect, so I’m hoping that today’s weather means there is hope. Very lovely work Janis.

  • I know…wasn’t it lovely? we went out for brunch and it seemed like the entire city was outdoors…of course this is brunch city, so everything was packed, but we did find a table at the Gladstone in the end…glad you like the painting…thanks so much MuiLing…
