What you're speaking of isn't so much "what makes a Haiku", but "what makes a Haiku good". It is very common in poetry to follow all the rules and still suck.

The things you quote and say about good haiku apply to pretty much any art form -- the ability to move the reader is so much more important than the ability to follow the rules strictly. However, like with most arts, you should learn to follow the rules well before you break them. It's like use warnings; -- there are appropriate times to turn it off, but it is rare and only done when one has already understood how to work supremely well with it on. In poetry and in code, you follow the rules until what you want to accomplish necessitates bending or breaking them.

Title:
Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>

to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":



  • Posts are HTML formatted. Put <p> </p> tags around your paragraphs. Put <code> </code> tags around your code and data!
  • Titles consisting of a single word are discouraged, and in most cases are disallowed outright.
  • Read Where should I post X? if you're not absolutely sure you're posting in the right place.

    [hippo]: Yary: There are a few useful pointers in I need perl coding standards
    [hippo]: ... and a boatload of good stuff in On Coding Standards and Code Reviews
    [Yary]: Looking at system pm's, looks like it's "package" on the first line, then POD, then "use 5.xyz;use strict; use warnings; use modules..."
    [Yary]: ah thanks for those links
    [hippo]: Just bear in mind that all such ideas are subjective.
    [choroba]: There might be a different standard at the shop you write the code for.
    [choroba]: The order of package - (strict+warnings | warnings+strict) - modules makes sense, POD and strict-warnings order are not so important
