Jan. 5th, Wednesday Zoom Poetry Meeting

January 5th, 4:00 p.m. PST (Jan. 6th, 9:00 a.m. JST), I participated in the Wednesday Poetry Zoom Meeting presided at by Ms. Kathabela Wilson.

Although I felt a bit under the weather, I presented a piece of my English tanka, and my fellow members submitted their poems one after another inspired by mine. Soon, it turned out to be a tasteful sequence!

It felt like the beautiful glow from every one of the poems presented shines our bright future.

My sincere thanks to Ms. Kathabela Wilson and my fellow members for this impressive and provocative opportunity.
