May 14, Thursday Zoom Poetry Meeting

Thursday Poetry Meeting in US, CA time. on 14th, 1:30 p.m.~ (Japan time, 15th 5:30 a.m.~ )
As I did in last week, I participated in Thursday Poetry Meeting in U.S. presided at by Ms. Kathabela Wilson.
Many pieces of very unique and distinctive poetry got together beyond the boundaries of distance and time.
In fact, I think that the interaction with fellow members rescues us from anxiousness.
I felt that sharing poems by reciting them face-to-face, even the pieces inspired by horrible reality, helped me to slightly lighten up my mind.
