What is Haiku?
Haiku is a traditional form of Japanese poetry.
A Haiku poem has 3 lines of 17 syllables-consisting of 5, 7, & 5 syllables, respectively. (The rules for writing Haiku in Japanese are strict, but in other languages it is simpler.)
Example from a Haiku Master, Murakami, Kijo (1865-1938):
(5) First autumn morning
(7) the mirror I stare into
(5) shows my father's face.
