    I just tried one. The anagrams were done line by line. It's really hard to get the new lines to meet the syllable requirements for a haiku.

    This was the my original:

    LitNet bangs along.
    Whither the moderators?
    Flown like autumn geese.

    Here is an anagram version that works (also about the LitNet mods):

    Long banal setting!
    Hither a shrewder motto:
    Know guileful easement.

    And here is Miss Congeniality: more likable than the winner but defective in form.

    Gallantest boning!
    A metered, whorish troth.
    Weakening. Useful motel.

    Thank you Danik 2016 !

    (lol) Enjoyed your offerings PB... I've done a few anagrammatic poems line by line, such as "The Road Not Ken: Ta !" (since revised)... http://www.online-literature.com/for...=1#post1267962 (hardly a haiku though... more a gambol through "The Road Not Taken" by Robert Frost)... keeps the mind young.

    On looking back - where have all the poets gone ? (sigh)

    7/25/2019... the link seemed to jump... TRYING AGAIN... anyway it's in the Avart-Garde Poetry Contest.

    Heresy

    There once was a god known as Zeus:
    Not my god nor your god, so whose?
    Juno who his wife was?
    Such puns are beneath us.
    It's Hera, see? Come, let's vamoose!
