Le haïku, c'est la vie et j'aime bien la liberté et la force de celui-ci. Il repose sur une allusion et un double sens. Il s'agit de deux lectures parallèles avec un seul point de divergence (L2), une partie seulement des sèmes y diffèrent. Chapeau.


color woman red blood humour

Structure of this haiku.

Used techniques :

* jeu_mots - Puns.
A pun, a double meaning word without being a pivot. This is often an occasion for a multi-level reading discourse with double meaning words. This device is linked to humour, to the comic of the situation.

* 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.

* concordance - Accordance between the surface and deep discourses
Accordance between superfical and deep discourses. Two parallel discourses.
