Analysis of the Haiku structure

averse de mai -
le tramway crie
comme un cochon

Commentaire.

Le haïku est aussi un discours amusé sur les choses. Il ne faut jamais l'oublier. J'aime bien la liaison originale entre l'averse, le tramway et le cri du cochon. La liberté est laissée au lecteur d'imaginer ce qu'il veut. Cette ouverture est un gage de réussite, notamment par la durée de la phase de liage lors du passage vers la mémoire long-terme.

Structure of this haiku.

Used techniques :

* 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.

* 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.
