    Some feel a need to separate these two haiku. However, for me they work as the perfect pair. "Stained" is an interesting word choice for both, given that it can imply a number of conditions. Nice work! Jack

    I like both a lot, but maybe for haiku form, the second is better?

    Both beautiful, both are so sad, I would like (as Chis mentions).....to know a little more..... there is a story waiting to be told...but to choose, I would pick #1 :)

    I like the first one better, but I suppose everyone has their own opinion. What a thought though! Such power it has to engage the senses!

    Both versions are impressive(I'll edit this comment regardless -- in the end-line of the 2nd version, is "fainting" supposed to be "fading"?). The rose petal has such a sentimental, melancholy feel to it. This is only a suggestion(I am rambling a bit): this haiku has a strong atmosphere and could possibly be extended into a great tanka.

    I like the second one better, though both are nice the second one is more effective, xxx

    I love these Haiku Charmaine, both are exquisitely written! My favorite has to be the last one, I don't know why, it just gives a certain feel! What a spectacular and creative poem, Great Work!!
