Haiku from Juliet

My friend Juliet asked me to share her haiku with YOU.

uninvited guest
holiday chill
winter wind

howling wind
listening intently
my cat purrs

first streetcar ride
in 2 years
comforting screech

on the airplane
the old man snores
I listen to Bob Dylan

the gift sits
in the bathroom
now they are divorced


Her site is here.

I especially liked the last two - a real story behind each haiku.

liked the last one especially -
bathroom scales I imagined

one of them got fat and boring

but which?
