Modern English Haiku or ME Haiku is a new form of haiku that follows the 5 / 7 / 5 / 2 pattern of syllables with one repetition. Conceptualized by me, ArchDuke Kenneth.

The traditional Japanese haiku's "on" or "beats" as known in the English verse, has a 5 / 7 / 5 pattern of syllables and no repeat.

One Happy Family

 

You have raised children

To be stronger and better

More conservative

Polite

 

Inquisitive mind

Yet they stop to listen when

You start to control

They’re free
