Feb. 16, Participated in a poetry reading event in Ikenoue, Tokyo

On February 16, 2024, I had the pleasure of participating in a reading event by Drank Poets Tokyo at Garigari, a live house in Ikeunoue, Tokyo.

Among the members were individuals I had met at the publication celebration party for Tokyo Poetry Journal Vol.14 last December.

Today, I presented a reading in Japanese and English of my previously created tanka sequence, "BanyanTree," which I composed during my past stay in India.

I was grateful to share this experience with everyone. Thank you all so much.
