    Haiku is Japanese poetry that has three lines. The first line consists of 5 syllables, 7 syllables for the second line, and 5 syllables for the third line.

    Glad you are enjoying writing haiku!

    By the way many contemporary haiku poets write haiku in under 17 syllables, partly because a Japanese-language haiku consists of sound units and not syllables, and their punctuation is made up of words rather than Western symbols such as: : ; , . !
