The Hunter
He sits. Watching all. Stealthily watching. And when the time comes, he steps gently, ever so carefully, so as not to cause a single leaf to stir. Not a breeze can alter his determination. An unheard noise ... and his taunt body springs. What caused this action, breaking his stance? A mouse?  Bird?  A snake! ... I hope not. What was in his mind this morn, so determined his cause? He chased the wind? He stops ... stands, Frozen again. He sits.
Author's Notes:
Three moles, two birds, a garden hose tie wire and hundreds of dead leaves.
(leaves, caught on the fly, not simply picked up off the ground)
