Analysis of the Haiku structure

lune voilée~
si brillants les yeux
du chat mort

Commentaire.

Oppositions : lumière (lune) versus obscurité (mort, yeux fermés), entre le Haut (ciel) versus Bas (la terre où sera enterré le chat), 'voilée' versus 'brillants', cycle de la lune versus la mort définitive. Le fait que la lune est voilée crée l'atmosphère dès L1. Les yeux encore brillants conservent un restant de Vie. Et puis, les yeux de chat sont une image de la Lumière dans la Nuit. Sublime.

Structure of this haiku.

Schema and motifs :

Schéma :
  Motif : mmm013 -

Used techniques :

* 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.

* 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.
