*gold fusion
syllable-based; 5-3-5 Faint, sparkling crystals Gold rings melt for the sun to steal  Extolling the merits of specific metals. Yet, many buyers seek advice from a jewelry salesperson during buying decision process and leave with little relevant insight. ~~~~~~~~~
**sand grain
word-based; 3-5-3. Delicious soft sand Akin to the sugar sweetness  my feet clinging ~~ Verses of great poet William Blake: To see a world in a grain of sand And a heaven in a wildflower, Hold infinity in the palm of your hand, and eternity in an hour.

Thank you so much for your insightful comment. I hope you feel better soon. After antibiotics courses of almost a month, I start feeling well. Take good care of yourself my friend. My best wishes to you.

Thanks Victor but the contest is just 2 Haikus.

Dear Lasaad, I admire the vivid imagery in your mixed pair of poems. Both are beautiful and distinct yet fit together wonderfully. Best wishes for a win and warmest wishes for you, my friend.. ~Susan

these are very lovely. I am curious if it was necessary for the contest to include a famous poem on the bottom like you did. It's a great poem anyway, by William Blake!!

Thanks for your thoughtful comment, Andrea; I didn't think it was necessary to add the famous poet; it just fits with the Haiku theme.
