crépuscule d'automne -
au fond du cendrier le mégot
encore incandescent

Commentaire.

Belle opposition-similitude entre le soleil rouge et le mégot encore rouge. Opposition aussi entre le grand et le petit. Relation entre le fond du cendrier où finissent les cendres et le jour qui se finit dans la nuit. On peut aussi ajouter l'archétype majeur de la Perte de la Lumière, venant du fond des âges, qui sous-tend ce haïku.

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

Archetypes and dialectics

* D_GrandPetit - Big <> Little.
