You use 5-7-5 syllables. here is a 5 syllable (get-ting bet-er dave?) that's an example of a five syllable sentence, but don't do sentences on it do it like these examples that I made for you guys.

eg. Haiku Seasons

In Summer Breezes

Be There Youthful Memories

Now Growing Older.

***********************

In Autumn Leavings

Be There Faithful Colourings

Now Growing Fewer

***********************

In Winter Freezes

Be There Painful Legacies

Now Growing Colder

************************

In Springtime Glories

Be There Joyful Romances

Now Growing Sweeter

************************

Through Haiku Seasons

Be There Fruitful Evergreens

Now Growing Wiser

Historically, a haiku is any stanza of a haikai-no-renga (often called renga - a linked poem with alternating stanzas usually played as a game and therefore composed by several writers). It has since evolved into it's own genre/style.

Typically, a haiku contains less than 17 syllables (according to Wikipedia, most modern English haiku contains between 10 and 14 syllables; according to Higginson, most haiku average 12 syllables).

A haiku can actually be between 1 and 5 lines, with no line or syllable pattern other than what the writer prefers to use (a haiku does utilize rhythmic units but this isn't always based on syllable count).

Traditional haiku is usually written as 1 line with several spaces between certain parts of the poems - those spaces are often translated into English as lines (especially in earlier poems; some modern haiku utilizes the 1-line scheme). For examples, refer to works by Ozaki Hosai, Yosa Buson, Matsuo Basho, and Nakatsuka Ippekiro.

There's not a huge focus on grammar in haiku - don't try to use complete sentences. The haiku may or may not be titled. It may or may not contain punctuation and capitalization.

A haiku doesn't use metaphor or simile. Many writers utilize comparison and contrast between two images that (often) seem to be unrelated at first glance.

There is no rhyming pattern to haiku; rhyme disrupts the imagery. And imagery is what haiku is all about.

Haiku relates an experience and/or describes an object/event - by describe, I mean that a haiku utilizes one (or more) of the five senses in relation to the object or event. It paints an image.

A haiku also doesn't reference emotions - emotion is what each individual reader brings to the haiku. This allows one haiku to have multiple meanings among a wide variety of readers.

A Haiku which has three lines and follows the 5, 7, 5 beats. A Senryu is a three line poem without the restrictions of a Haiku. However, you can write any type of poem with as many or as few lines as you want, which is the beauty of poetry.

Yes. The Haiku was developed and refined in Japan. Arguably the most famous haiku poet, who really perfected the form, was Basho, who was born in 1644, and first began to write poetry in 1676.
