Commentaire.

Un haïku sur le motif assez fréquent du "Ciel dans le bol". Variante ici avec la lune. On y voit à l'oeuvre divers archétypes. Celui de la Miniature : un peu du Cosmos dans mon bol. Celui de la liaison entre Moi et le Cosmos. Celui d'Ingestion du Monde. Techniquement, il y a opposition du grand (Lune) et du petit (bol), de la Lumière et du noir (Obscurité). Et tout cela au fond du bol...

Structure of this haiku.

Schema and motifs :

Schéma :
  Motif : mmm015 -

Used techniques :

* 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.

* partie - Active small part for the whole.
A small part is linked to a bigger. The part for the Whole.

* atmosphere - Atmosphere.
Something emerges from all the elements that constitute haiku: a climate, an atmosphere. The author does not state this explicitly. It is the reader who reconstructs it from his or her own experience.

This is especially true in three-segment haiku, also called "grocery list". But this effect can also be achieved in other ways.

The mention of feelings related to the weather and taste adds a multisensory dimension to the atmosphere created.

* poesie - Use of poetical devices.
Use of poetical devices.

* 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

* A_Fragment - Fragments.

* D_GrandPetit - Big <> Little.

* D_IntExt - In <> Out.

* D_HautBas - Up <> Down.
