I remember well
The syllable argument
From ages ago

Actually I don't remember it that well, but I have a feeling the 5-7-5 is an 
English invention and actual Japanese Haiku just have a limit on the overall 
number of syllables. I think it must reference seasons or something too in 
order to be a true Haiku.

Who said this list was too technical? :D
