What is a Haiku?

Micropoetry | Haiku | Gogyohka | Tanka | Senryu | Twaiku | 1-6 lines | 3-10 words

Previously called hokku, haiku [pronounced: high-koo], was given its current name by the Japanese writer Masaoka Shiki at the end of the 19th century. A Haiku poem is usually 17 syllables or less, and can be divided into three groups of 5, 7, and 5 syllables. A haiku traditionally contains a kigo, a defined word or phrase that symbolizes or implies the season of the poem. More info at Haiku for People
