Analysis of the Haiku structure

Dans le vieux meuble
peint en vert
le parfum des confitures

Voilà encore un haïku multi-sensoriel. La couleur et l'odeur. Une écriture toujours efficace car elle nous touche mieux et surtout, comme le dit Jeanne Painchaud, elle restitue intacte l'impression originelle. Ajoutez à cela une note de sabi, le charme des choses qui ont vécu. Je parle du vieux meuble mais aussi de nos souvenirs d'enfance (confiture). Et puis, n'y a-t-il pas là aussi ce désir inavoué de voler cette confiture...
