Haiku Sign in the Snow

My front yard has never looked better…

The full haiku is

At the new moon
bit by bit
everything hushes

It is by Chiyo-no, translated by me and Isabel Winson-Sagan. On recycled metal signs–you need to walk two blocks of Kathryn (start at 600 block and go north) and then one on Cortez (back to 600 block) to find it. It is also geocached.

  1. I went back to the earlier blog to see more about the project in 2013 and love this idea. The changes created by the environment create even more possibilities.

    • Thank you for this. The thrashers love to sit on our sign. I visit the other signs regularly. Vines grow up them, die down, the yards change, the light…I wonder if there is another installation in all this.
