Analysis of the Haiku structure

winter solstice
the street sweeper picks up
a glass half full

solstice d'hiver
le balayeur de rue ramasse
un verre à demi vide

Commentaire.

Analogie inusitée entre le moment où le jour égale la nuit et le verre à moité vide. Au fond, pourquoi pas à moitié plein ? Peut-être parce qu'il s'agit d'un reste ? Cette incertitude permet au haïku de persister un certain temps en mémoire rapide. Ce qui lui donnera plus de résonnance.

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.

* 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.

Archetypes and dialectics

* A_Passage - The Crossing, the Transition.

Tout ce qui est le passage d'une étape, d'une borne, d'un état à l'autre. Le franchissement d'un col, le passage d'une barrière séparant deux zones. Les ponts, solstices, nouvel-an...
