Jun. 11th, Friday Zoom Poetry Meeting

June 11, 4:00 p.m. PDT (June 12, 8:00 a.m. JST), I participated in Friday Poetry Zoom Meeting presided at by Ms. Kathabela Wilson.

The meeting was held in memory of our good friend, Mr. Robert Stewart, an excellent photographer, painter, and poet, who passed away suddenly.
It was a time of remembrance. Each one of us shared our memories of him, his achievements, and his warm and sincere personality.

I shared a photo of my hands playing percussion that he had taken in 2012. I performed improvised reading of tanka inspired by the photo imagery presented by one of the participants.

May his soul be filled with peace.
