Analysis of the Haiku structure

snow flurries -
my unborn grandchild's
perfect fingers

flocons de neige -
de mon petit-fils à naître
les doigts parfaits

Une analogie rare entre le dentelé des doigts et du flocon. Le caractère froid et délicat ajoute un élément spécial au 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.

Effects: liadyn - Binding with dynamics effects

At the level: 2-prof - Deep level
Deep and non explicit structures, active objects of the unconscious.

Description level: 5-strp - Deep structure (schemas, patterns, cultural, associations, similarities)
