aux premières lueurs

Commentaire.

Haïku très ouvert à toutes interprétations. Il va ainsi laisser une trace longue dans notre mémoire car le sujet n'est pas résolu. On reste intrigué et l'objet ne se range pas immédiatement en mémoire. Ce type d'ouverture finale est une technique efficace pour augmenter les chances que le haïku soit retenu par le lecteur.

Structure of this haiku.

Used techniques :

* yugen - Yugen.
Yugen is a concept of Japanese aesthetics that can be expressed as deep, mysterious, dark, troubled.... In criticism of Japanese poetry, he expresses a subtle depth of things that are vaguely evoked in the poem.

* xxx - Undefined appeal.
Haïku having something undefinable that deserves further study.

* absence - The main element is not explicit.
The haiku is structured around an unnamed element to which each image refers. The interest is to save the space that would be used by naming the element while having the effect it produces.

The haiku can appear as a vault from which the scaffolding has been removed. If the haiku is well composed, the main element is absent but everything refers to it.

This technique delays storage in memory because the reader must complete the discourse with the unnamed element so that the haiku is unambiguously understandable. It then acquires a higher memory weight.

* mémoire - Memory active element.
The driving force behind this type of haiku seems to be a memory that reappears.
