3 lines

first line, 5 syllables
second line, 7 syllables
third line, 5 syllables In English, Haiku is written in three lines with each line having an exact number of syllables. The first line contains five syllables, line two contains seven syllables, and line three contains five syllables. In Japanese, Haiku also has three parts, but can be written as one line. And instead of counting syllables, the Japanese count sounds. Haiku is required to 'suggest' a single season somehow. It might be directly, by using a word like 'blossom' for Spring, or 'snow' for Winter, or indirectly, by tone, imagery or pace.
