Analysis of the Haiku structure

toute la nuit
dans les yeux d'un loir
mort au petit matin

Commentaire.

Haïku magique porté par les archétypes de la Mort et de la Nuit. On rencontre parfois cette expression de la nuit dans les yeux du mort. L'attention portée à ce petit animal en fait une image universelle de la mort des êtres qui n'ont pas eu le temps de vivre. Et puis, c'est la Nuit avant d'avoir pu revoir la Lumière.

Structure of this haiku.

Used techniques :

* 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

* 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.

Archetypes and dialectics

* A_Mort - Death.

Contexte de mort (deuil, décès, cimetière...) ou pulsion de mort (guerre, violence...).
