What are the 3 essential characteristics of English haiku?

Posted 8 years.

    Why three?
    Because the common perception is that Japanese haiku is defined by 1) its form of 5-7-5 Japanese letters, 2) traditional inclusion of a seasonal reference, and 3) a break or emotional pause (kire) to trigger the reader's imagination. What might be the corresponding three key features of our still-evolving English haiku, I wonder?
