Pale early summer
wind full of apple blossoms
gutters brim with pink.

That is an _excellent_ example of the haiku form, in my opinion. Thanks.

For Japanese, "Haiku" must consist of "season word" and "5-7-5 sound symbol".

Season word: early summer

Sound symbol : ???

But, in English, only seasonal word seemed to be required..

Haiku is easy

But sometimes they don't make sense

Shita, 'sound symbol' would be syllable in English, and this one does follow the 5-7-5 syllable pattern.

Or do you mean something different entirely?
