Haiku was previously called Hokku. At the end of the 19th century Masaoka Shiki, who was a Japanese writer was the one who gave its name to Haiku. The main difference of Japanese Haiku with the English Haiku is the subject. In Japanese traditional Haiku takes aspects of the natural world as their subject matter, while the English Haiku deals with any subject matter. Japanese Haiku is written in three phrases of 5, 7, and 5 syllables.

Pollute the sea and ocean
Death of birds and fish.
