    Excellent! It raised a smile and made me marvel once more at how haiku/senru can have such diverse sources of inspiration. I will never again watch my dog lift his leg without thinking of him as a potential graffitist.

    Ah, graffiti, always a great topic for haiku or senryu!

    Graffiti was a life saver growing up in the City of Bristol (UK) due to Banksy.

    Now I've moved to Chippenham (UK) and we are having a skatepark and climbing centre which entails (pun part intended) a lot of graffiti on the construction site boarding.

    As this is in a parcel of land owned by a charity founded by the first Queen of England (Mary, not Elizabeth) there are a lot of dog walkers, and the dogs can be let off the leash!
