Here's a set of 12-syllable English haiku. If I am to choose a fixed form for English haiku, I'd choose this one (without constraint on the number of syllables per line.):

here to fill
my belly with fish--
I feed a koi

jeepney ride--
the rooster is quiet
all the way

siesta time--
a sparrow is looking
for something

shadow boxing
before a multitude
of stars

dinner time--
downstairs, my niece
calling out my name

the full moon
is up so early--
first Lenten palm
