Analysis of the Haiku structure

the earth softened ...
we planted tulips
when he loved me

la terre ramollie ...
nous plantions des tulipes
quand il m'aimait

Il y a du souvenir "enterré" dans ce haïku. La nostalgie aussi d'un temps meilleur avec de l'espoir (la plantation espère toujours les fleurs).

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.

* 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.

* memoire - Memory active element.
The driving force behind this type of haiku seems to be a memory that reappears.
