Time Stands Still

Resting on the water's edge
of a stone birdbath,
its orange feelers  curl 
outward  like tiny
 telegraph coils - transmit schisms 
I witness the microscopic
lapping  of an insect

Not a dragonfly
perhaps a wasp,
 abdomen pumping
like a heart beat between
 clear shining wings
 A seed falls, a flash of light 
 it  disappears upon a 
nearby twig leaving
reflections of ripples.
