A light exists in Spring
Not present on the year
At any other period
when March is scarcely here

Ring-billed Gull

Looking pretty innocuous and innocent here, these are the thieving gulls who love to live amongst us in Southern Ontario. Few other birds have adapted to city life as well as these pesky gulls. They are very tolerant of humans, though show their displeasure of our vehicles every chance they get.

They love the litter we produce, eating just about anything and can be seen swarming any park, beach, golf course, parking lot or patio for our generous handouts.

Distinguishing features are their yellow legs, yellow eyes and a dark ring around a yellow beak.

I was blue, just as blue as I could be
Ev'ry day was a cloudy day for me
Then good luck came a-knocking at my door
Skies were gray but they're not gray anymore

Blue skies
Smiling at me
Nothing but blue skies
Do I see

Singing a song
Nothing but bluebirds
All day long

Never saw the sun shining so bright
Never saw things going so right
Noticing the days hurrying by
When you're in love, my how they fly

Blue days
All of them gone
Nothing but blue skies
From now on

I should care if the wind blows east or west
I should fret if the worst looks like the best
I should mind if they say it can't be true
I should smile, that's exactly what I do

- Irving Berlin, 1926

seeing the sky through the tree branches

the trees are dull
branches brown and bare
at least there's a view
of the sky through there

seeing the sky through the hydro tower lines

moving the storm clouds
the sun determined
