Commentaire.

Haïku marqué par l'étrangeté de l'analogie qui le fait très ouvert et mystérieux. On a l'impression de surprendre un instant secret où des choses occultes sont en oeuvre.C'est cela qui me l'a fait retenir malgré l'intervention de l'auteur dans le discours (L3) et le caractère poétique de L2.

Structure of this haiku.

Used techniques :

* yugen - Yugen.
Yugen is a concept of Japanese aesthetics that can be expressed as deep, mysterious, dark, troubled.... In criticism of Japanese poetry, he expresses a subtle depth of things that are vaguely evoked in the poem.

* 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.
