Commentaire.

Tout est dit. Haïku d'atmosphère. On remarquera l'utilisation des deux sens (la couleur et le son) et l'ambiguïté de la couleur rouge. L'amour et son lien "red district". Une saisissante économie de mots pour décrire la situation.

Structure of this haiku.

Used techniques :


* atmosphere - Atmosphere.
Something emerges from all the elements that constitute haiku: a climate, an atmosphere. The author does not state this explicitly. It is the reader who reconstructs it from his or her own experience.

This is especially true in three-segment haiku, also called "grocery list". But this effect can also be achieved in other ways.

The mention of feelings related to the weather and taste adds a multisensory dimension to the atmosphere created.

Effects: liasen - Binding with sensorial feelings.
