Structure of this haiku.

Used techniques :

* S1 - Folded sentence.
Haiku in one folded sentence.

* archetype - Active archetypes.
Active presence of archetypes that have determined relationships between images. These archetypes are structures that have aggregated seeds (meanings) and are patterns inherited from the collective unconscious. These are the models that we use to organize our perception of the World.

* opposition - Images in opposition.
Images with a group of opposite senses. The images are in opposition to each other. However, the opposite semes are grouped into dialectics. A dialectic is composed of opposite semes, like the two sides, poles of the same grade.

For example:
- Top and Bottom.
- Inside and Outside
- Big and Tiny

Archetypes and dialectics

Le retour à la maison, au passé, revenir sur ses pas, retrouver ce que l'on a quitté.

* A_Route - The Road, the journey.

* D_Mouvement - Moving <> Still.
