Analysis of the Haiku structure

premier thé -
au parfum de bergamote
le jour se lève

Commentaire.

Sublime lien improbable entre le parfum de bergamote et le jour qui se lève. On est ici dans le multi-sensoriel odeur, couleur, goût. Cette interaction très concentrée entre les sens joue à plein. A noter l'archétype de l'Aube, dérivé de celui de la Lumière et de la Vie qui l'emporte.

Structure of this haiku.

Used techniques :

* multisens - Synestesia - Multi-senses perception.
Haïkus using effects on several senses (hearing, touch, taste, vision, smell). They play on the phenomenon of resonance between feelings (Synesthesia). This device usually produces strong haikus because they are physical.

* juxtaposition - Juxtaposition.
Use of images placed side by side to create an effect superior to that of each separate image. It is not a resonance effect as in similarity but rather a composition effect as in a painting or still life.

As the juxtaposed images have no or very few common semes, they compose a new global image in relation to its components.
