1. A haiku is a poem. It should be artistic.

2. Haiku poem is short and balanced. The first line has five syllables, the second has seven, the third has five syllables.

3. Using words with many consonant sounds, like "strength", is a no-no, or the sounds should each be counted as a syllable. The entire poem should be able to be said aloud in a single breath.

4. The poet observes nature. At the moment when he experiences his own oneness with nature, the "haiku moment", he describes exactly what it is in nature that elicits this feeling, at the instant when the feeling occurs.

5. In his description of something in nature, the poet elicits strong human emotion from his readers.
