fresh paint
a white moth circles
the bug light

peinture fraiche
un papillon blanc tourne autour
de la lampe contre les insectes

Commentaire.

Les papillons blancs sont dans la culture américaine un symbole de l'âme des défunts. Il y a résonance entre ce papillon et l'idée qu'il va mourir.

Structure of this haiku.

Schema and motifs :

Schéma :
  Motif : mmm010 -

Used techniques :

* 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.

* simili - Similitudes.
Use of images with common semes. The sharing of common semes (qualities, characteristics) makes images reinforce each other. There is resonance because the mind makes the relationship between the two images.

A cup of tea and a lake share the fact that they are an expanse of liquid surrounded by a rim. We can "see" the image of one in the other.

Archetypes and dialectics

* A_Mort - Death.

Contexte de mort (deuil, décès, cimetière...) ou pulsion de mort (guerre, violence...).

* A_Lumiere - The Light.

La Lumière.
A mettre en relation avec la Lumière dans la Nuit.
