Rest in Pieces

A newborn body was found
in the wreckage.
How bittersweet
to have survived nine months
in such confined spaces
to finally experience freedom from the womb
only to have such life stolen
because of some mechanical failure.

There were no survivors
which perhaps was just as well.
What would have life been
for that poor broken infant
or the mother
if only one had survived?

After the turmoil
of that aborted flight
at least they could share
a bit of peace.
