A Haiku is a short Japanese poem in three phrases used to evoke images and typically characterized by three qualities:

1-  the juxtaposition of two images or ideas and a “cutting word” between them, a kind of verbal punctuation mark which signals the moment of separation and colours the manner in which the juxtaposed elements are related.

2- Set up in three phrases (In Japanese, haiku are traditionally printed in a single vertical line while haiku in English often appear in three lines parallel to the three phrases of Japanese haiku).

3-  A seasonal reference

These are Visual Haiku which follow the rules of the written ones
