Haiku poems are a short form of Japanese poetry consisting of nature-related and vibrant imagery. It is typically written with three lines and 17 syllables (5-7-5 syllable count) in English. However, in Japan they do not use syllable counts, rather sounds. So, haikus do not need to adhere to this traditional English structure. A complete definition of haiku poems.
