Haiku in the Hood Project is UP on Santa Fe’s Westside

The first haiku sign–first line of the poem–starts at 626 Kathryn St.

The next line is on a sign one block north on Kathryn, on the west side of the street (just south of Agua Fria).


Then go to Cortez, one block west of Kathryn, between Sierra Vista and Hickox. Look on the west side.


The haiku is by Chiyo-ni, a medieval Japanese woman poet. Translation by Miriam Sagan and Isabel Winson-Sagan. Design, fabrication, and installation by Tim Brown and Isabel Winson-Sagan.

We hope to put up another series of three signs in the spring in the same neighborhood. I’m keeping a master list of people interested in hosting a sign. If you aren’t on the west side, we need three locations to install.

Look forward to your responses!

Haiku in The Hood

We are finishing fabricating 3 signs. Each one has a line from the featured haiku by Chiyo-ni, a classical Japanese woman poet.The translation was done by me and Isabel Winson-Sagan, metal work by Isabel and Tim Brown, and lettering from Paper Tiger. The sign below will go up at a height of 5-6 feet in my front yard–Friday is the projected date!
I’ll post more, and the other two signs will go up when finished and sites confirmed. Looks like we have enough front yards, but if you are interested, do drop me a note. It is likely we’ll do another set of 3 for spring, and possibly may offer a package of three for sale (your choice of haiku).
