la petite

lune du loup

Evidemment, si on lui a raconté l'histoire du loup... Sans rire, on commence à voir en Europe des haikus sur le nom de lunes, une pratique de l'Amérique, il me semble. La belle juxtaposition, l'ouverture finale et le fait que la "clé" du haiku est à la fin donnent lui donne une force un peu mystérieuse liée à notre Imaginaire profond.

Structure of this haiku.

Used techniques :

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

* 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

* 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.

* yugen - Yugen.
Yugen is a concept of Japanese aesthetics that can be expressed as deep, mysterious, dark, troubled.... In criticism of Japanese poetry, he expresses a subtle depth of things that are vaguely evoked in the poem.

* fin - Final element give the clue.
A detail at the end reveals the real meaning of haiku.

* jeu_mots - Puns.
A pun, a double meaning word without being a pivot. This is often an occasion for a multi-level reading discourse with double meaning words. This device is linked to humour, to the comic of the situation.

Archetypes and dialectics

* A_Menace - The Threat.

Le sentiment qu'il y a une menace latente. Quelque chose d'indéfinissable.
