Analysis of the Haiku structure

faltering light ...
alone with the cry
of a loon

lumière faiblissante ....
seul avec le cri
d'un huard

Commentaire.

Deux archetypes importants donnent à ce haïku une activité particulière. Celui de la Nuit qui vient, une crainte millénaire ancrée au plus profond de nous. Et celui du Cri, ici cri de présence, un appel solitaire, face à la Nuit.

Parfois relié à l'Appel.

* A_Nuit - The Night.

La nuit primale, avec son obscurité, ses "dangers", ses mystères et nos peurs millénaires.

* A_PlaneEau - Something hovering over the Water.

* D_MoiMonde - I versus the World

Mention d'un être qui se dstincte par rapport au reste du Monde.
