    Every pedestrian
    looking at the face
    of the abandoned dog.

    roadside hindu shrine
    plump dog sleeps
    below deity's legs

    He, K. Ramesh

    In the garden
    is added another flower
    my sadness

    piegon's kiss
    the branch of a fir
    is becoming more green

    An empty bowl;
    The cat is somewhere
    In the neighborhood

    The dog's eyes
    brighten up suddenly:
    the owner's children

    abandoned dog
    noisy city
    seeking little boy

    Kala-----I weep for every stray animal

    Stray cats,
    there are none in Mexico.
    They are eaten.

    jawbones
    off the side of the road --
    an empty collar


    pile of bones -
    mahjong

    Hi Ramesh,
    Nice to see you here again!
    Your poem talks in simple ways which is extremely touching.
    And Judith - here is a mistaken identity !!
    K. Ramesh is not me .... !

    i am new to haiku.

    Hi Ramesh,

    What a beautiful haiku. You have caught the essence of hope and despair.

    Hi Ramesh,

    Your haiku was simply superb. For a few moments, I felt as if I were a abandoned dog.

    Warm regards,
