Ce haïku fait partie de ceux, très rares, qui ne s'expliquent pas. Il a pour moi un charme magique. On le lit puis il agit.

Caesura between L2 and L3.

* 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).

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

* soudain - Sudden modification.
The haiku describes a sudden, sometimes unexpected event. He grabs something that just happened. It appears as a transition between two states: before and after.
