Well, http://westernchanfellowship.org/zen-and-art-of-haiku.html has a
quite nice introduction to writing haiku. 

I remember reading about how some variety of haiku has a more strict
form in the sense that first you have introduction or "setting of the
mood", kind of describing the beginning of the situation, then a flash
of action, and finally something to "give meaning" or an interpretation
to the previous two. Unfortunately, I couldn't find the reference

Besides, what constitutes as a syllable in Japanese isn't even too
clear, and even besides that, kanji can have several different ways of
reading. This contributes to the problem nicely. If you want to become
a real haiku poet, learn Japanese. :)

(The following doesn't follow the form I described above.)

Lo! Marvellous!
The Haiku experience
overwhelms me.
