David http://wordcoaster.wordpress.com* has enhanced the traditional haiku form. These 3 haiku are dedicated to him. (Well, the first one isn’t a haiku, it’s a plea, the second & third ones are Reversed-Engineered.
Come on baby
What are REVERSED-ENGINEERED Haiku?
Here’s David’s REVERSED-ENGINEERED “haiku” directions. I quote:
“I think perhaps a “reverse-engineered haiku” (if it really WAS a form) would perhaps be three lines of 7-5-7 syllables? Or maybe would be written backwards? Hmm…might have to try one of those out.” David
David, here’s an attempt at the two forms of Reverse-Engineered Haiku YOU inspired:
Rewind, re-verse my per-verse
broken haiku form.
Rescue me creatively

All fault David for
haiku engineered reverse.
For it’s David’s fault*
P.S. David is obviously “prone” to cheating . . . . or as he says, enhancing . . . as EVIDENCED by his bio on his very own blog:
*My name is David. I was born and raised in Baltimore, MD. I have three wonderful sisters and two amazing parents. Currently I am studying Community Development at Covenant College in Lookout Mountain, GA. I love to read poetry and I also love to write poetry, though like most people I’ve never been formally trained. I also like the tone a photograph can set for an entire poem–the emphasis it can add or the spin it can give. Some would say it’s cheating–I say it’s enhancing.“
