In This Bite of Time

By John I. Blair

Sometimes time seems truly to stand still.

A finch, midflight to the feeder,
Stops in the sunlit air
Outside the window.

The bubbled stream of water
Stands like a classic column
In the enameled sink.

A single syllable
From the announcerís mouth
Sounds a note not yet a word.

Your eyes
Brimmed with tears
Still have not looked away.
