Analysis of the Haiku structure

Lendemain de fête
dans un coin de la chambre flotte
le parfum de sa robe

Haïku d'atmosphère intimiste. Une simple notation mise en contexte et l'effet naît. La référence au parfum ouvre ici un espace sensoriel et sensuel qui donne au haïku une dimension érotique. Peut-être accentuée par la proximité "chambre", "lendemain", "robe".

Structure of this haiku.

Used techniques :

* S1 - Folded sentence.
Haiku in one folded sentence.

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

* 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.

* détail - A detail is the key element of the haiku.
The strength of these haikus lies in a detail, either in its relationship to other elements or images, or in its own strength. It plays the active role and will be remembered.

We can recognize there the action of the archetype of the ActivePoint.

Archetypes and dialectics

* T_Immobile - Frozen Time.

* - Frozen Time.
