Analysis of the Haiku structure

dark early--
sepia roses
under street lights

il fait noir tôt --
les roses sepia
sous les lumières de la rue

Commentaire.

Haïku d'atmosphère, minimaliste. juste poser les choses. Il est intéressant de noter l'ellipse de "avec l'éclairage de la rue, la couleur des roses n'est plus discernable et il ne reste que du sepia". C'est une technique utile pour dire plus qu'on se sait le faire dans un espace si restreint. A noter aussi la mention de la nuit qui tombe tôt, qui apporte une connotation spéciale. Archétype de la Nuit qui vient. ET l'opposition lumières vers obscurité.

Structure of this haiku.

Used techniques :

* archétype - 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.

* 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.

* opposition - Images in opposition.
Images with a group of opposite senses. The images are in opposition to each other. However, the opposite semes are grouped into dialectics. A dialectic is composed of opposite semes, like the two sides, poles of the same grade.

For example:
- Top and Bottom.
- Inside and Outside
- Big and Tiny

Archetypes and dialectics

* A_Nuit - The Night.

La nuit primale, avec son obscurité, ses "dangers", ses mystères et nos peurs millénaires.
