Commentaire.

Haïku construit sur la juxtaposition d'éléments afin de créer une atmosphère. Ici, cependant pas de mouvement. On est dans l'après, le temps lent. Les connotations sont cependant opposées. L'espoir d'une renaissance (les fleurs), la froideur de la pluie. A remarquer les sèmes de fragilité et de caractère épéhème des deux derniers éléments. Les fleurs donneront des fruits, la pluie partira.

Structure of this haiku.

Used techniques :

* S3 - Three elements haiku.
Three independent elements compose the haiku. Also known as the grocery list.

* 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.
