Difficile à traduire. Ce haïku est construit sur l'effet de lumière et l'opposition entre froid de l'hiver et chaleur du the, donc vraisemblablement entre l'Intérieur et l'Extérieur.

Structure of this haiku.

Used techniques :

* 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.

* S21 - Caesura between L2 and L3.
Caesura between L2 and L3.

* multisens - Synestesia - Multi-senses perception.
Haïkus using effects on several senses (hearing, touch, taste, vision, smell). They play on the phenomenon of resonance between feelings (Synesthesia). This device usually produces strong haikus because they are physical.
