The Elusive Bird This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.


Wild turkeys
Sly and elusive
They can hear andsee
Many times better than we
But I the hunter seek out this bird
Icamouflage my body
Blending with my surroundings
Moving little
Makingnot a sound
A bearded bird enters my view
My heart beats likethunder
And breathing is a struggle
He struts his way around
Circling mydecoy
He stops
Looks straight in my eyes
Now seconds seem likehours
He turns slightly away
Up comes my gun
He hears the sound
Hishead rises trying to find the source
A thunderous sound erupts
And todaythe hunter has won
