Tranquillity written by Dannielle Viera at

Where oh where can their souls be?
Mass calls from our humanity
Searches over land and sea
For the missing group of three

Above, painful expectancy
Below, only tranquillity

Golden hair floats silently
Fish stare in new perplexity
At their neighbours’ laxity
Deep within the sea’s belly

Above, the cries of tragedy
Below, only tranquillity

The trio found and suddenly
Death becomes reality
Grief flows through the entire country
Relief for friends and family

Above, dark curiosity
Below, only tranquillity

Curse and worse it’s claimed to be
Morbid tourists come to see
The scene of death and misery
For the kin of Kennedy

Ashes scattered over sea
Dissolved into tranquility


It is inspired by the death of John F. Kennedy Jr and Carolyn Bessette in a 1999 plane crash.
