Analysis of the Haiku structure

cerisiers en fleur
de nouveau croire
à ses promesses

Commentaire.

Juxtaposition d'éléments de natures différentes (fleurs, promesses). Similitude entre la fragilité des fleurs (qui ne font que passer et qu'une averse peut détruire) et les promesses (par définition non sûres). Archétype de la Fragilité mais aussi du Cycle du Temps. Les fleurs reviennent avec le printemps comme les promesses ("à nouveau").

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.

* simili - Similitudes.
Use of images with common semes. The sharing of common semes (qualities, characteristics) makes images reinforce each other. There is resonance because the mind makes the relationship between the two images.

A cup of tea and a lake share the fact that they are an expanse of liquid surrounded by a rim. We can "see" the image of one in the other.

* archetype - Active archetypes.
Active presence of archetypes that have determined relationships between images. These archetypes are structures that have aggregated seeds (meanings) and are patterns inherited from the collective unconscious. These are the models that we use to organize our perception of the World.

Archetypes and dialectics

* A_Fragilité - Fragility, tenuousness.

Quelque chose de fragile dans un univers "hostile". Qui emporte en lui quelque chose.

David, le petit être.

* A_Cycle - Cycle of Time.

Le cycle des saisons, des années, des vies. Cela peut être répétitif comme les saisons ou à un seul cycle avec une croissance suivie d'une chute.
