Jan. 15th, Friday Zoom Poetry Meeting

January 15, 4:00 p.m. PST (Jan. 16 9:00 a.m. JST), I participated in Friday Poetry Meeting presided at by Ms. Kathabela Wilson, and performed reading of new Tanka sequence created with Ms. Kathabela.
I was glad that the participants were interested in "Hamon-on" which is one of the percussion instruments I used for background sound for our reading performance.
We were all inspired by each other by poetry, paintings, images and flute play presented to the meeting. Sprinkling with improvisation among the fellow members, it was a very amazing meeting.

To Ms. Kathabela and all the attendants, thank you very much.
