Sept. 23, Wednesday Zoom Poetry Meeting

September 23, 4:00 p.m., U.S. time (Sept. 24, 8:00 p.m., Japan time), I participated in Wednesday Poetry Zoom Meeting presided at by Ms. Kathabela Wilson, and performed reading of "Wish List", which is a Haiku & Tanka sequence I composed with an English Haiku poet, Ms. Deborah P. Kolodji just a night before the meeting.
Composing sequence with Ms. Deborah is an irreplaceable joy because we inspire each other through an invisible rainbow between her in California and me in tokyo.
In addition to flute play by Mr. Rick Wilson and paintings by Mr. Robert Stewart, I was inspired by the photos of mural paintings Ms. Deborah took in Santa Fe by chance. It was a very rich and artistic time.
