Curbside Haiku



A year ago, we told you about artist John Morse and his Roadside Haiku project in Atlanta. Now his talents have been commissioned for traffic signs in New York City! The New York City Department of Transportation has installed a collection of curbside signs written in haiku along with graphics designed by John Morse. The seventeen-syllable poetry warns drivers, pedestrians, and bikers to watch for safety hazards. Some also have QR codes. See more of them at core77. Link -via Metafilter

They are brilliant! I really love the cyclist one "unwanted door prize" made me LOL

It's really hard to be angry while reading Haiku - even if it's composed entirely of curses, it's still very peaceful.
