A haiku is a Japanese form of lyric verse expressing, in very few words, a single idea, image, or experience, usually about nature or the seasons. In English, it consists of three short lines, totaling no more than 17 syllables.

Ah, what a pleasure
to cross a stream in summer —
sandals in hand.

~ Yosa Buson (1716-1784), Japanese poet and painter
