278. koan village 2: the tyger’s hunt

the tyger was observing the dark dark woods when he smelled the tortoise.

a few steps of careful prowling and he could see the tortoise, as well. he was coming toward the tyger, but he couldn’t see him yet. probably on account of tortoise’s notoriously bad vision or the fact that the tortoise was looking at the ground.

he considered pouncing, prowling, or watching.
