Nov. 24, Wednesday Zoom Poetry Meeting

November 24th, 4:00 p.m. PST (Nov. 25th, 9:00 a.m. JST), I participated in the Wednesday Poetry Zoom Meeting presided at by Ms. Kathabela Wilson, and performed reading of some tanka poems including my latest ones I composed this morning.

I am very grateful for the opportunity to communicate with the other members through poetry, as we have not been able to travel freely for a long time due to the Corona pandemic.

For the first half of the meeting, I attended from the terrace under clear skies, and for the second half, I moved into the Japanese-style room to avoid the sunshine.
