shouldering coals
the rattle of blue crabs
in a metal bucket

Commentaire.

Haïku de Mort. Tout y concourt, même le bruit des carapaces contre le seau de métal. La fuite impossible. Haïku très fort qui ne dit rien explicitement mais laisse le lecteur reconstruire avec son vécu.

Structure of this haiku.

Schema and motifs :

Schéma : sss020 The Encounter.
  Motif : mmm031 - An animal that tries to escape death.

Used techniques :


* 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.

Effects: liainc - Binding to the Unconscious


At the level: 2-prof - Deep level
Deep and non explicit structures, active objects of the unconscious.

Description level: 6-inf - Active infrastructure (archetypes, dialectics)


* 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.

Effects: liadyn - Binding with dynamics effects


At the level: 2-prof - Deep level
Deep and non explicit structures, active objects of the unconscious.

Description level: 5-strp - Deep structure (schemas, patterns, cultural, associations, similarities)
