i row my boat

dans le soleil)

Commentaire.

Ombres et lumières, la grande opposition de nos archétypes majeurs au travers d'un geste peut-être naturel : ramener l'esquif dans la chaleur du soleil. Il navigue sur l'eau sombre des marigots. Une image similaire à celle du lotus clair sur l'eau sombre. L'auteure est indienne. Cette image a donc pu la "guider"...

Structure of this haiku.

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

* feuilleté - Multilevel discourse, layered haiku.
Haikus with two (or more) reading levels. A first objective level referring to a situation, another underlying level saying something else. The Chinese are fond of this type of discourse with many levels.

These various levels may be conscious or unconscious.

We find a little bit of this technique consciously applied in the weather haiku. The weather element can be understood as an mention to the weather and as the element that creates the atmosphere of haiku.

The two levels of discourse are conscious and disjointed and well visible in haiku tanka, of which they form the two parts. However, they overlap in the layered haiku.

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

* 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.

Archetypes and dialectics

* A_Lumière - The Light.

La Lumière.
A mettre en relation avec la Lumière dans la Nuit.

* A_Menace - The Threat.

Le sentiment qu'il y a une menace latente. Quelque chose d'indéfinissable.

* A_ChoseActiveEnfouie - Hidden active things

Toute chose non nommée enfouie dans des profondeurs, qui serait active et produirait des effets perceptibles. Concept de l'Inconscient.
A différencier de la Chose Cachée, qui n'a pas d'activité au niveau profond.

* D_ClairSombre - Light <> Darkness.

* T_Lent - Slow Time.
