Okay... so according to your message to me, you need this in Japanese.  So I'll give it a shot.  As I understand it, haiku is supposed to be 5 syllables, 7 syllables, 5 syllables.  So I'll do it like that, even though I may not be able to make it literally say everything the English does.  I'm going to do this in romaji:

Soto samui

Yuki ga ki de ochiru

Kaze ga fuku

As you see, I didn't get the part about branches in the second line and I do not have any trees in the last line.  But I don't see how I could get those in without going over the number of syllables allowed.

If you need to look stuff up -- either J-E or E-J, check out the following link -- it's a pretty awesome dictionary site.

This is simple and clear. You should trust your own abilities more...

The Haiku gives us a clear and powerful image of a winter scene.

It is cold outside

The snow falls from tree branches

Wind blows though the trees.

It is what it is. A concise picture of winter. There is no mystery. The poet is decribing a winter scene.
