A Tune through the Mist , Amy McCarter

A Tune through the Mist
by Amy McCarter
December 2008

A hauntingly soft tune chimes through the mist
the melody of ghosts is whispered through the air.
One note then another, to form a song of my dead
a soothing hymn from the departed.
Beauty, longing, love, ache, these are words released from invisible lips.
A mournful peace embraces me as the music fills my ears.
Composed in another realm, lingering only for a precious moment.
The grayness of fog a perfect venue for such a melancholy concert.


about the poet.
Amy lives in North Carolina with her husband and two greyhounds. Amy describes her journey, "Our only child Liam was born alive and apparently healthy on September 25, 2007, and was the joy of our lives. Our son Liam died soon after birth due to unexplained/unknown causes, shattering our world and our hearts. Art is an expression and release of my grief, and a way to honor the memory of our little man who is missed beyond words." Amy maintains a blog showcasing her Creative Everyday Challenge at Surviving the Day Every Day.
