How to Write a Haiku Poem

By definition, a haiku is a Japanese lyric verse form having three unrhymed lines of five, seven and five syllables, traditionally invoking an aspect of nature or the seasons.
That being said, Haiku verses have been liberated over the years to address many subject matters. Listed below is an example for your review.

Morning Sun Dances Five Syllables
When the gentle rain greets dawn Seven Syllables
With a lovely sigh Five Syllables
