Analysis of the Haiku structure

Un bel effet de juxtaposition qui produit une atmosphère; ce qui le distingue d'une énumération banale (so-what haiku). En deux lignes, tout est dit. A noter l'activation de plusieurs perceptions sensorielles qui rendent ce haïku très physique.

Structure of this haiku.

Used techniques :

* multisens - Synestesia - Multi-senses perception.
Haïkus using effects on several senses (hearing, touch, taste, vision, smell). They play on the phenomenon of resonance between feelings (Synesthesia). This device usually produces strong haikus because they are physical.

* juxtaposition - Juxtaposition.
Use of images placed side by side to create an effect superior to that of each separate image. It is not a resonance effect as in similarity but rather a composition effect as in a painting or still life.

As the juxtaposed images have no or very few common semes, they compose a new global image in relation to its components.

* atmosphere - Atmosphere.
Something emerges from all the elements that constitute haiku: a climate, an atmosphere. The author does not state this explicitly. It is the reader who reconstructs it from his or her own experience.

This is especially true in three-segment haiku, also called "grocery list". But this effect can also be achieved in other ways.

The mention of feelings related to the weather and taste adds a multisensory dimension to the atmosphere created.

* L2 - Two lines haikus.
Two lines haiku.

Archetypes and dialectics

* D_IntExt - In <> Out.

* T_Lent - Slow Time.
