What's a Haiku?

Based on the Japanese model, an English Haiku, at its most basic, is a three-line poem that follows a very distinct syllable patter; line one has 5 syllables, line 2 has 7 syllables and line three has 5 syllables.

Haikus are often used to evoke fleeting moments or observations about our natural world. They generally don't rhyme and use little punctuation.
