(To the seven astronauts, including 2 women, of the ill-fated 
Space Shuttle Columbia, February 1, 2003)

let our remains
scatter on earth’s bowel
we’ve paved the way
so future astronauts
can carry on our goals


yonder above the vast expanse
how puny the earth looks
a blue-white speck adrift
almost in nothingness

just for a little while there
I sensed not only loneliness
but fragile hope for humankind
in its incessant search
for peace
