Wikipedia said said:Haiku (俳句, haikai verse?) listen (help·info), plural haiku, is a form of Japanese poetry, consisting of 17 Japanese on (a phonetic unit identical to the mora), in three metrical phrases of 5, 7, and 5 on respectively[1], and typically containing a kigo, or seasonal reference. In Japanese, haiku are traditionally printed in a single vertical line, while haiku in English usually appear in three lines, to equate to the Japanese haiku's three metrical phrases[2]. Previously called hokku, it was given its current name by the Japanese writer Masaoka Shiki at the end of 19th century.

Can a Haiku have a period or hyphen in the middle like this one?...

I think you have earned

the joy of a Miata.

Mine is on e-Bay.

P71,

Miata, and E30

Holy Trinity

EDIT: requires you pronounce them "seventy-one" and "thrity", not "seven-one" or "three-zero" (though it still works if you say "three-oh")
