Haiku are strictly about nature. All of the definitions posted here are incorrect, those are senryu, which are haiku that do not deal with nature.
HAIKU:

Whispering softly
Willow trees in the winter
Sway in the cold wind.

SENRYU:

I have a big cock
It is much bigger than yours
Yours is just too small

Haikus have three lines.
The first has five syllables,
Then seven, then five.

Proper haikus are about nature, especially the seasons; the structure tends to be more important than the words.

Underneath a tree
Summer air is so easy.
