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

A cow's in the field,
It knows not what is to come.

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.
A haiku:
Underneath a tree
Summer air is so easy.
So is yo mama.
