after each haiku—
the pencil
a little shorter

après chaque haïku —
le crayon
un peu plus court

La perception d'un changement est fréquente dans le haïku. Il s'agit en général d'un passage parfois soudain entre deux niveaux. Ici, cependant, c'est l'inéluctabilité qui produit l'effet. Il est difficile de dire si l'auteur veut montrer la transformation du crayon en écriture ou si cela signfie le cours du Temps.

Structure of this haiku.

Schema and motifs :

Schéma :
  Motif : mmm013 -

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.

* avis - Opinion given by the author.
The author tells his/her views or an explanation. The speech is not neutral at the first level of reading/writing. This is not a haiku where the author explains to the reader what he or she should understand, usually completed and of no interest. Here, the author gives an indication that is part of the elements of the discourse in addition to the others and that is not a redundancy (redundancy, precision, explanation).

Archetypes and dialectics

* A_Temps - Time.
