'haiku' and 'senryu' are traditional forms of poetry in Japan. A format of 5 syllables in the first line, 7 in the second and 5 in the third lends itself to creating a beautiful rhythm. In Japanese it is also simply called 5-7-5. Traditionally, there were many rules, for example the use of seasonal references.
