angry neighbors
I must find the stray dog
another home

    I like this poem. It has a good senryu spirit.

    The night in the street,
    only a man and a stray dog-
    no house,no kennel

    wavering in the morning sun
    yellow butterfly's flight


    overcast skies
    in the middle of my day
