Feb. 19th, Friday Zoom Poetry Meeting

February 19, 4:00 p.m. PST (Feb. 20 9:00 a.m. JST), I participated in Friday Poetry Meeting presided at by Ms. Kathabela Wilson, and performed Japanese - English bilingual reading of my new Tanka sequence.

Although my sequence was about my honest depressed emotion, I felt that the participants understood my feeling very well, and I was able to have confidence to establish soul to soul communication.

Ms. Cynthia Anderson's superior collaboration of images and poems, which was the feature of this meeting, inspired me a lot.

Also, the other participants presented their unique and free-minded works.

I believe that it is the broad-mindedness of the organizer that let out all the participants' free expressions.

I would like to thank to everyone.
