Is there a way to correct the definition of haiku that is featured on Hubpages? The misinformation is a sentence in the description for haiku that says: "The sentences must have five syllables, seven syllables, and five syllables respectively."
This is not correct. Haiku can be more or less than three lines. Haiku can have different syllable counts, preferably twelve syllables or less. The old "five-seven-five" pattern is what is taught in many American schools which has led to most Americans not understanding what haiku is. Since Hubpages is respected as a source of information, I feel the description should be corrected. Though I am not a member of the Haiku Society of America, a definition that is in line with their definition of haiku seems more appropriate. http://www.hsa-haiku.org/archives/HSA_D … _2004.html
Please help stop spreading misinformation about this beautiful art form.

Why are the rules of Haiku not as strictly enforced when written in English?When written in English, the rules of Haiku generally dictate "17 syllables or less" rather than three lines syllabized 5-7-5. Why is this so and what other rules are relaxed when Haiku is written in English?
