Analysis of the Haiku structure

winter evening
the last dried pepper
goes into the soup

soir d'hiver
le dernier piment sèché
passe dans la soupe

Commentaire.

Au coeur de l'hiver, au plus froid, on ajoute un élément chaud (le piquant du piment). Il apparait comme un Point actif, dernier survivant de la chaleur de l'été. Haïku multisensoriel qui fait une opposition Froid versus Chaud au travers d'un trait sémantique jouant sur son double sens.

Structure of this haiku.

Schema and motifs :

Schéma :
  Motif : mmm003 -

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.

* xxx - Undefined appeal.
Haïku having something undefinable that deserves further study.

Archetypes and dialectics

* A_PointActif - Active point (color, sound, ...)

Variante de la Couleur. Ici, c'est un point, généralement de couleur qui a le rôle important. En fait, cet archétype illustre le fait que c'est l'Inconscient qui analyse les images de notre regard. C'est lui qui repère ces points et y dirige notre regard.

* D_IntExt - In <> Out.

* D_ChaudFroid - Warm <> Cold.
