Commentaire.

Situation ambigüe que ce haïku. On hésite entre plusieurs lectures possibles. La femme est-elle volage ? Se fait-elle belle pour son homme ? Est-ce que le bleu est celui de l'Espérence ? Je veux croire à cette dernière possibilité. Un haïku à plusieurs lectures possibles, non pas parce qu'il est imprécis, mais parce qu'il est bien construit, reste très actif dans lors de la phase de liage en mémoire. Le mascara bleu est ici un pivot sémantique.

Structure of this haiku.

Used techniques :

* xxx - Undefined appeal.
Haïku having something undefinable that deserves further study.

* 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.

* 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
