    Thanks for visiting Alex.

    With respect – you are incorrect. A haiku traditionally has 5, 7 and 5 sounds in Japanese. These sounds do not accurately translate into English syllables. For a better explanation see

    Further – the word haiku does not have plural from in English.

    Modern English forms of Haiku no longer strictly follow the syllable count.
