    Hi…I am trying to learn about haiku….please check this and give me pointers…
    “Rain brings love,
    Water washes away pain,
    Memories were refreshed”

      Since you are aware of the syllable rule just follow it. For haiku it is 5-7-5. In the above verse the first line has only 3 syllables as all three words are only 1 syllable each.
      Wa- ter is 2, wa – shes is again 2 a- way is 2 and pain is 1. So total of 7 which is perfect!
      Again the last line has 6 syllables…..exceeding the permissible limit by 1.
      Hope this was helpful!
