Analysis of the Haiku structure

à chaque éclair
dans le pré d'en face
les charolaises s'allument

Commentaire.

Ce haïku tire sa force de la juxtaposition rare entre flashs et vaches. On voit bien les charolaises s'allumer comme les lampes des anciens flippers. Cette image nous amuse . Il est aussi basé sur des oppositions éphémère versus stable (vache), léger versus lourd.

* 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.

* 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
