Analysis of the Haiku structure

Esprit de Noël -
j'ai expulsé les migrants
qui squattaient ma crèche

Commentaire.

Un haïku engagé. On commence à en voir depuis l'automne. Un clin d'oeil pour rappeler que les mêmes situations ne donnent pas lieu aux mêmes interprétations.

Structure of this haiku.

Used techniques :

* 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.

* 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
