Startide Rising and Yosa Buson's Haiku (2005-12-22)

I read a novel "Startide Rising" translated by Japanese.
The book is SF (science fiction).

I found Yosa Buson's haiku in the book.
David Brin this book's author referenced "Anthology of Japanese Literature" by Donald Keene.

Yosa Buson Haiku

Harusame ni
  nuretsutsu yane no
    temari kana

As the spring rains fall,
  soaking in them, on the roof,
    is a child's rag ball.

from "Anthology of Japanese Literature from the Earliest Era to the Mid-Nineteenth Century"

What's Haiku?
Haiku is Japanese poem.
Haiku has 5-7-5 phrases and word of a season.
I cannot understand and explain...
