May 8, Friday Zoom Poetry Meeting

As I did last week, I participated in Friday Poetry Zoom Meeting which is presided at by Ms. Kathabela Wilson at 4 p.m. on May 8, U.S. time (8 a.m. on May 9, Japan time).
Free and active discussions were made on the poetry works presented. I was inspired a lot by their works, and had an opportunity to create two pieces of poems in two languages in the meeting. Although it was a virtual Zoom meeting, creating and reciting poems in the meeting was as exciting as real poetry meeting.
I would like to extend my sincere gratitude toward Ms. Kathabela, Mr. Rick Wilson who played Shakuhachi flute, and all the participants to the meeting.
