April Review

Filed under: Open Reading Minutes — show1miyamura @ 4:51 pm

April 2013

A little chill in the air among the first warm days this year.
I was happy to see more new faces joining our circle of sharing the art of words.
Art from the Latin word meaning to arrange. Each person has their own unique
way with words. It gives me much pleasure to hear what patterns words can weave.


Brett Hack ( USA )
prose     ~ A Conversation about Spartacus ~
We were both starved of conversation worthy of our skills.

Shoichi Miyamura ( Japan )
poem     ~ Walk ~
Whichever window frame you might look through
It could only provides its own view
poem     ~ Me ~
It’s me on this side who’s not seeing anything at all

Leah Sullivan ( USA )
Yoshiko Shimoto’s Class
I am inspired by my colleage.

Albert Sussler ( USA )
essay     ~ Disdain ~
Suspicion and antagonistic behavior to others build a comfort zone
that helps to eliminate uncertainty in oneself.
prose     ~ Cycle to Kyoto ~
I let Dick with his limited vocabulary of 10 Japanese words handle
the negotiations.

Izma Effendi ( Indonesia ) debut
poem     ~ The Final Happiness ~
The breeze that comes from every droplet of rain absorbed into your
pores and reveals your very being as a human with emotions.
