__In silence and with one leg retracted, Gulls stand on their other leg to rest, as shallow as their rest may be. To test the depth of their rest, toss out a bit of that donut in your hand, then you will see and hear...  "The Flock Frolics!"  _m

herring gulls
to their warm breeze doze 
I toss a crumb

first day of spring
I give a dollar

Oh I love herring gulls!
Yes, amazing how the statues leap into life when you toss a crumb...what better way to get better acquainted...;)
Brilliant! :))

On the backwaters of Kochi I have seen gulls standing on one leg and waiting very patiently but I never tried to toss donut because they were far away. Excellent haiku. I enjoyed it.
