in my soup bowl
her silver hair

    A bittersweet blossom, redolent of love & memories, gentle wit, & tender irony.

    Best wishes to all, for a year of good health & good poetry.

    _I must agree with Kala and Bill; Bob, an equally warming thought!

    May you have a wonderful 2007!

    I often find my partner's long hair in various things, but so far, touching my head, none in my soup!

    Thank you for the haiku, and I'll keep watching out, just in case. ;-)
