Analysis of the Haiku structure

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

Commentaire.

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".
