police sirens --
another night
without the moon

sirènes de police --
une autre nuit

Commentaire.

Quelle est donc la relation entre la police et l'absence de lune ? Cela suffit à créer des questions qui évitent de ranger trop vite ce haïku. Observer le temps qu'il faut pour passer de ce haïku au suivant par rapport à un autre.

* 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.

Effects: liasen - Binding with sensorial feelings.
