Analysis of the Haiku structure

Indian summer
a yellowed postcard
falls from the book

Eté indien
une carte postale jaunie
tombe du livre

Commentaire.

Sabi, le charme désuet des choses qui ont vécu. Il y a cependant une connotion un peu différente apportée par L1. Si on voit la similarité entre un papier jauni, vieilli et l'automne, l'été indien, marquant un sursaut ajoute une impresssion spéciale et un peu mystérieuse à ce haïku. S'agit-il d'un souvenir qui revit un instant, comme l'été, juste avant la Chute de l'automne ? L1 n'est pas là par hasard. Il ajoute un temps de réflexion avant le rangement en mémoire et donne donc de la résonnance au discours.

* 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.
