Haiku Artwork Installed Across Newcastle
Posted on 10/05/2020

The next time it rains, you might see a haiku magically appear on a Newcastle sidewalk. The City of Newcastle is proud to partner with the Newcastle Library, Newcastle Arts Council and 4Culture to place haikus across five sidewalk locations using Rainworks' rain-activated solution.

The Newcastle Library held a haiku contest and the judges selected five lucky winners whose works are now on display. Get out and see all of them at the following five locations:

Coal Creek Pkwy & Newcastle Way - Fruit and Produce pedestrian corner 
Sunny days ahead,
dancing around the city.
Bring your hopes and dreams.

Newcastle Way - City Hall sidewalk 
Family is key
Together we overcome
Love will lead the way

Newcastle Way and 129th Ave SE - Library corner 
More pages to turn
Stories left to uncover
No end to explore

Lake Boren Park - entry to path from the parking lot
Shimmering summer
Glitters across the lake top
Sunshine takes a swim

Coal Creek Pkwy & Newcastle Way - ATI/Starbucks pedestrian corner
Some colorful rocks
along our green forest trails
Cheerful reminders!
