A review of haiku poems is an excellent way to become familiar with this form of poetry. Remember that in translation, the morass won’t be the same as syllables. In Japanese, there are 5 moras in the first and third line, and 7 in the second, following the 5-7-5 structure of haiku.
Here are three examples of the haiku of Basho Matsuo, the first great poet of haiku in the 1700s:
An old silent pond...
A frog jumps into the pond,
splash! Silence again.
a worm digs silently
into the chestnut.
what I thought were faces
are plumes of pampas grass.
