just where
creek becomes river
the rain begins

la pluie commence

Haïku d'atmosphère que je soupçonne d'avoir un fond psychologique. Un haïku du "soudain" ici non temporel, mais plutôt de localisation, marquant une transition. Le haïku note parfois ces changements du monde. Des détails transitoires qui accrochent notre regard.

Structure of this haiku.

Used techniques :

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

* 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.

* psycho - Haiku with a psychological background.
Haiku can have a reading level that expresses an underlying psychological situation that is still active. It is not sure if this analysis is accurate. It can simply exist in the reader's mind. It is almost always absent from the author's intention, as can be seen from the author's request for information.

* soudain - Sudden modification.
The haiku describes a sudden, sometimes unexpected event. He grabs something that just happened. It appears as a transition between two states: before and after.
