A haiku contains 17 syllables in just 3 lines. The first two lines contain 10 syllables(5 each) and the third one contains 7. The poem doesn't meet the criteria of a haiku. Therefore it shouldn't be called a haiku. It may be an expression composed well.

Anyone who sticks to the 5-7-5 syllable rule knows nothing or is outmoded. Even the haiku of Basho when translated in English ignore the rule. Modern haiku could be 1 or 21 syllables.
