What Is a Haiku?

Haiku is a form of Japanese poetry made of short, unrhymed lines that evoke natural imagery. Haiku can come in a variety of different formats of short verses, though the most common is a three-line poem with a 5-7-5 syllable pattern.

Rules of a HAIKU poem:
A haiku should have only 3 lines with a total of 17 syllables.
The first line should have a total of five (5) syllables.
The second line should have seven (7) syllables.
The third line should have five (5) syllables.
