Cataclysm Of Light

First,
there was an exploding sound,
everyone looked around,
then the plane was going down,
the captain heard
his co-pilot utter a curse word,
but before he could take another breath,
and prepare himself for death,
the plane exploded in a cataclysm of light and sound,
and moments later,
only debris hit the ground.

    I wonder if it's better to just go, not enough thought involved for fear just an ending. After 911 I listened to the conversations from the plane, to tell that one person, that one last time that your heart belongs to them,,,okay I convinced myself, I want time before the explosion.

    Gripping and tragic poem, Frank. Surely this is one of the fastest ways to die, and also one of the most frightening. Very good - seems so real! Love, Carolyn
