Feb. 23, Wednesday Zoom Poetry Meeting

From 4:00 p.m. PST on Feb. 23 (9:00 a.m. JST on Feb. 24), I participated in the Wednesday Poetry Zoom Meeting presided at Ms. Kathabela Wilson, and presented a reading of my latest English tanka sequence.
In the meeting, I had an opportunity to listen to the Tanka sequence co-created by the other members. I was deeply moved by their presentations because it was the moment for me to witness the realization of my long-held dream of spreading Tanka to the world.

I would like to express my sincere gratitude toward everyone who enjoys the beauty of Tanka. Even in these difficult times, please continue to express your world with your rich sensibility.
