in the rubble
of my childhood home
wild flowers

dans les décombres
de ma maison natale
des fleurs sauvages

Un autre motif du schéma de la Vie qui triomphe. Au delà des oppositions déchéance vers survie, construction versus nature, il y a les archétypes de la Vie, de la Vie Sauvage. Il contient aussi l'idée que la maison a survécu d'une manière différente, l'idée Bouddhiste de la réincarnation.

Structure of this haiku.

Used techniques :

* S1 - Folded sentence.
Haiku in one folded sentence.

* 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.

* 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

* sabi - Sabi
The sabi is a concept of Japanese aesthetics, derived from Zen Buddhist concepts, linked to the feeling created by the alteration by time, the decrepitude of aging things, the patina of objects, the mark of Time. The charm of things that have lived (Vintage des Américains).

Are sabi: Used steps from an old staircase, worn clothing, a rusty railing, a patinated knob...

In connection with Sabi-wabi.

Archetypes and dialectics

* A_Vie - Life.

Toute manifestation d'un être pour affirmer sa présence, sa survie, parfois dans un contexte qui lui est défavorable.
