A Moment In Time                                                                                                    

Caught in the moment,
mid step
            between rain drops.
The beating heart stilled.

A water droplet suspended
between tap and sink.
The second hand frozen
on the bedroom clock.

Outside of time a pause
that cannot be measured.
A breath that can
never be taken.

Then the heart beats.
The droplet 
                  falls
with sudden splash.
The clock hand moves.
The wet step 
                  continues.
