      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!
