May 15, Friday Zoom Poetry Meeting

Starting at 4:00 p.m. on May 15th U.S. time (8:00 a.m. on May 16th, Japan time), I participated in Friday Poetry Meeting and performed tanka reading.
The fellow members presented their own style of poetry such as free-form poems, Tanka, Haiku, Cherita and such.

The style in which each one of us was inspired by each other worked out perfectly, and I enjoyed the session so much that I almost forgot the time passed by.
To Ms. Kathabela Wilson who presided the meeting, Mr. Rick Wilson who greatly inspired us by playing Native American flute, and all the fellow members. Thank you very much for the meaningful time!
