Commentaire.

Haïku d’atmosphère reconstituée par la juxtaposition de détails. Le caractère minimaliste mime bien le sujet. Une technique à étudier pour les bavards qui se sentent obligés de tout dire au lecteur. On ne sait en effet quel est le discours sous-jacent ; mais il est bien là. Cela force le lecteur à le chercher ou le construire avant le rangement en mémoire long-terme.

Structure of this haiku.

Schema and motifs :

Schéma :
  Motif : mmm041 -

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

* 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.

* 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.

Archetypes and dialectics

* A_LumiereNuit - The Light in the Night.

Tout ce qui apparait au propre comme au figuré comme une lumière dans la nuit. Un espoir, le bout du tunnel. Un abri. Le phare. La survivance d'une chose noyée dans un univers "hostile".

* A_Lumiere - The Light.

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

* T_Immobile - Frozen Time.
