whistling variant

When Aurora, in her comment on "whistling," referred to a deja vu moment, it was because she had already seen this one-line variant: same words, different arrangement. I'd be glad to know which works better for you.

this feels like a different haiku to me... more cheerful in a way.
but i can't decide which one i prefer.

Well, that's a good sign, polona. I'd like to believe that each one works in its own way, and your reading is very interesting.

Both are nice to me. I would prefer this one if somebody with the gun forces me to choose :)

A difficult question, without any guns 5 points for this one,
and 4 pts for that another one below.
I cannot explain why,
I'm just feeling that way, now.

(Ps maximum is 5 pts)

ps2. Perhaps that's why; This haiku is beginning with a picture of a nature, and the last line is something technical? :-??
