    But it's still not a haiku (at least to my limited understanding) because it's not about a seasonal event, and his original form, I feel, reads much more poetically. What is with this obsession of things that look similar to haikus? Is it just that they appear easy to create and everyone wants to be a poet?
      Is it just that they appear easy to create and everyone wants to be a poet? Yes.

      The basic form of ha-i ku is an "amusing sentence" that follows the three-line, 5-7-5 form. Note, it must be a sentence, not several. There are more constraints, depending on school of thought and whom you ask. Popular constraints:

      • Must have to do with nature
      • Must have to do with a season
      • If using the above constraints, you must introduce that element in the first line of the poem.

      .oO all things connect through the motion of the mind

        Wikipedia has a good article on the Haiku form- 5-7-5 gets taught in schools a lot but slavishly holding to a syllable count does not produce a haiku. The most important thing is the juxtaposition or twist which causes you to stop and think. Natalie Goldberg in Writing Down the Bones calls it "A Sensation of Space" - "If you read a lot of Haiku, you see there is a leap that happens, a moment where the poet makes a large jump and the reader's mind must catch up.". The Wikipedia article puts it this way "the subtle linkage or juxtaposition between the two sets of images within a haiku will be found to contain an interesting insight or spiritual message". Unfortunately it is rarely taught and leaves most Haiku wanting.
