Mallards Fly No More

Early morning
  winter breeze
finds me
  wading waist deep
in murky water
  where
in the darkness
  enticers precisely
placed wait
  unwearyingly
to execute their master's
  will knowing
from the easter heavens
  they will come
in free flight
  sounding 
a characteristic note
  hunting
for mates 
  while sun's rays rain
among trees
  illuminating
hunter-green heads
  poised bodies
until
  a slight movement
barrel raised
  twitched finger weighing
heavily on
 aimed weapon
relaxes and pulls
  releasing
deafening thunder
  then
utter silence
  scattered feathers,
Mallards fly no more.
