Contemprary Tanka Poet Mariko Kitakubo. Article details.

Sept. 23 to 25, TRIVENI World Haiku Utsav 2016.

Sept. 23rd to 25th, I participated in TRIVENI World Haiku Utsav 2016 in Pune, India.
I am greatly honored to have been a guest at this one of the largest Japanese poetry events in India.

I was able to perform my 100th bilingual tanka reading in the international poetry events in India, which is the country I visit for the first time in my life.

Being mindful to stay healty, I would like to continue taking small steps to move forward frome now on.
I performed bilingual tanka reading for 25 minues. With Ms. Akila Gopalakrishnan.
All together.
Sept. 24th

I talked about "What tanka brings to me (Because of tanka, I was able to hold myself together when my late mother passed away suddenly.)"
Pleasant talking time.
Sept. 25th

Tanka reading and talk about Mr. Yukitsuna Sasaki and other poets I have been inspired.
I was able to spend wonderful, fun and meaningful time with all the other participants.
