un gin bien chaud
avec un zeste de citron
vent de tempête

Haïku construit sur des oppositions emboîtées. L1 et L2 sur le goût. L12 et L3 sur le confort par rapport à l'inconfort du dehors. Le grog est chaud et il fait froid dehors. La quiétude et la tempête.

Structure of this haiku.

Schema and motifs :

Schéma :
  Motif : mmm016 -

Used techniques :

* 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

* 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.

* S21 - Caesura between L2 and L3.
Caesura between L2 and L3.

Archetypes and dialectics

* D_ChaudFroid - Warm <> Cold.

* D_IntExt - In <> Out.
