Une curieuse analogie entre "loucher" et les jour en plus de février. Et qui est renforcée par les jumeaux. Haïku humoristique pas pas que cela. Une belle construction active.



Structure of this haiku.

Used techniques :

* 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.

* jeu_mots - Puns.
A pun, a double meaning word without being a pivot. This is often an occasion for a multi-level reading discourse with double meaning words. This device is linked to humour, to the comic of the situation.

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

* fin - Final element give the clue.
A detail at the end reveals the real meaning of haiku.
