Oct. 21, Thursday Zoom Poetry Meeting

October 21st, 1:00 p.m. PDT (Oct. 22nd, 5:00 a.m. JST), I participated in the Thursday Poetry Zoom Meeting presided at by Ms. Kathabela Wilson.
I was very glad that the members enjoyed my reading performance of English tanka with two kinds of Hamon-on. Mr. Rick Wilson presented the meeting his Shakuhachi performance, and I was able to spend an enriching time in the early morning of an autumn day.
To all the participants, thank you very much.
After the meeting, Ms. Kathabela Wilson shared on SNS a wonderful & thoughtful comment on my performance. I would like to send my sincere gratitude toward Ms. K. Wilson.

"Mariko Kitakubo so graceful and musical caries hopefulness of the future, tanka words like a magical cure." (text & photo by Ms. Kathabela Wilson.)
