The Hunter

A-gile she walks,
taking stock of
every step her
B-rashness emitted
her long stride
C-at is a coy and
confident girl and
D-oves have a reason
to fear her
E-very bird from
Jays to Sparrows
avoid their
F-eline foe when she
is in the yards
G-rasses are tall
this season and she
H-idden in the
esters, purple
fountains or
I-nside the shadows
of the tall Lavender
K-nowing they can’t
see her she
L-ies in wait  
M-y kitty will leave
Nothing to chance,
she doesn’t move
while they’re in the
O-pen air  she
and studies her
P-rey for hours
Q-uietly she stalks
them, she’s deep in
the grass like a
R-econ mission in
S-he seizes the
T-actfully, silently
gets on her haunches
U-nleashes her body
like a rocket
V-ictory! Victory!
Won a sparrow for
her prize.
X-Mas! she
Y-elps, it’s like
X-Mas!,  and she
lays her kill to the
ground and
celebrates with

My poor kitties can't get out to stalk the birds. There are too many coyotes out there. Congratulations on your win. Love, Joyce
