She comes here in the early morn,
amongst those that are laid to rest.
From her sad eyes, transparent teardrops fall
and from her spectral heart, a cry goes out
for her lost love of many years gone by.
How can the hurt of such great loss be healed?
Alone, she daily kneels and cries and prays
that one day may their wandering spirits meet
and once again find happiness and love -
although it be in but etherial embrace.
This picture, taken with my little Nikon P5100, is in the cemetary behind the St. Johns Anglican Church in Camden, NSW Australia. This is a beautiful and historic rural locality, to the South West of Sydney, just outside the Metropolitain area.
Having taken the picture, there was a collaborative effort with Rosalie Dale to create a suitably vintage look. The picture of the spectral mourner is courtesy of stock art
In turn, the verse was suggested by the finished image.
