Haiku are a highly condensed form of writing.
There is a lot more to it than the classic (English) fixation with 5-7-5 syllables, but that is the common starting point.
When it works, it can really work. The striving is the fun.
There was a fun project in 2016 uncovering accidental haiku in FT articles.
Here are some that I have tried.
- a Haiku based either on your WIP or favourite book.. (27 words)
a turn of the page
light and shade slides across words
- inspired by nature, a moment of beauty, or a poignant experience. (25 words)

balletic, hungry, driven
