Analysis of the Haiku structure

spicy chicken …
this impulse to ask
if she's married

poulet épicé ...
cette pulsion pour demander
si elle est mariée

Unité de discours entre la surface (épice, poulet, femme) et la profondeur (aventure, érotisme).


woman humour

Structure of this haiku.

Used techniques :

* concordance - Accordance between the surface and deep discourses
Accordance between superfical and deep discourses. Two parallel discourses.

* 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.
