I'm new to Haiku's. Is that how they go?

Anyway, post away with a Haiku!
Somewhat.
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)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.

Example: in the eggshell after the chick has hatched

Quote:
1. The essence of haiku is "cutting" (kiru). This is often represented by the juxtaposition of two images or ideas and a kireji ("cutting word") between them, a kind of verbal punctuation mark which signals the moment of separation and colours the manner in which the juxtaposed elements are related.
2. Traditional haiku consist of 17 on (also known as morae), in three phrases of 5, 7 and 5 on respectively. Any one of the three phrases may end with the kireji. Although haiku are often stated to have 17 syllables, this is inaccurate as syllables and "on" are not the same.
3. A kigo (seasonal reference), usually drawn from a saijiki, an extensive but defined list of such words.

The best-known Japanese haiku is Bashō's "old pond":
ふるいけやかわずとびこむみずのおと (transliterated into 17 hiragana)
furuike ya kawazu tobikomu mizu no oto (transliterated into romaji)
This separates into on as:
fu-ru-i-ke ya (5)
ka-wa-zu to-bi-ko-mu (7)
mi-zu no o-to (5)
Translated:
old pond . . .
a frog leaps in
water

This haiku by Issa illustrates that 17 Japanese on do not always equate to 17 English syllables ("nan" counts as two on and "nonda" as three.)
江戸の雨何石呑んだ時鳥
えどのあめなんごくのんだほとゝぎす
edo no ame nan goku nonda hototogisu
This separates into "on" as:
e-do no a-me (5)
na-n go-ku no-n-da (7)
ho-to-to-gi-su (5)
Translated:
how many gallons
of Edo's rain did you drink?

English haiku:
Jack Kerouac-
Snow in my shoe
Abandoned
Sparrow's nest
Strictly in terms of content, the classic Japanese haiku are composed of two major parts of varying lengths, such as 5-12, 12-5, 8-9, 9-8, 7-10, and 10-7, in the generally decreasing order of prevalence, with the first two being the most prevalent.
Quote:
yuku haru-ya (5) tori naki uo-no me-ni namida (12) - Basho

spring passing -
birds cry, tears in the eyes of fish

neko-no meshi shoubansuru-ya (12) suzume-no-ko (5) - Issa

sampling the cat's food -
a baby sparrow

Although a majority of contemporary Japanese haiku are still written in the classic 5-7-5 form, a significant number of them make use of what is called ku-matagari (segment-straddling), where a word straddles two segments. Many haiku that appear to be, and can be read aloud as 5-7-5 are actually 7-5-5, 8-4-5, 5-9-3, 5-8-4, etc. And there's one word haikus.
