Mariko Kitakubo wrote:  "We had such sweet memories.  She invited me to Gualala, and I visited to read my tanka at her Jazz Festival Reading event in April, 2009.  She was invited to the Japan PEN club conference in September, 2010 and I brought her to Hakone."

misty lake Ashi
like a dream --
our tea cups
still there?
foot of Mt. Fuji

after Hakone
you wept for joy ...
I miss you so
at the same hotel
in order your favorite tea

and my tanka posted in TSA.
