From http://www.ahapoetry.com/keirule.htm

Today, many bilingual poets and translators in the mainstream North American haiku scene agree that something in the vicinity of 11 English syllables is a suitable approximation of 17 Japanese syllables, in order to convey about the same amount of information as well as the brevity and the fragmented quality found in Japanese haiku. As to the form, some American poets advocate writing in 3-5-3 syllables or 2-3-2 accented beats. While rigid structuring can be accomplished in 5-7-5 haiku with relative ease due to a greater degree of freedom provided by the extra syllables, such structuring in shorter haiku will have the effect of imposing much more stringent rules on English haiku than on Japanese haiku, thereby severely limiting its potential.

Do not break the rules.

sitting on chase lounge
kids are catching butterflies
life is oh so sweet

the cats dart past us
they scratch and claw, hiss then purr
they know its springtime

we move to the front
the cats and kids follow us
sipping ale, sunset
