Who knew about the many meanings of the word flush?

The hunter was flush1 with the ground so as to be hidden so he could then flush2 the birds out of the woods, previously he flushed3 the toilet while imagining a straight flush4 in the poker game the previous night. He was flushed5 at the thought of that winning hand as the sky flushed6 pink at dawn while he was hunting.

1. Arranged with adjacent sides, surfaces, or edges close together
2. To frighten (a game bird, for example) from cover
3. To be emptied or cleaned by a rapid flow of water, as a toilet
4. A hand in which all the cards are of the same suit but not in numerical sequence
5. To turn red, as from fever, embarrassment, or strong emotion
6. To glow, especially with a reddish color
