February Review

February 2017 Open Reading Review

With words like light, brighten and shared, our prose and poetry circle continues
with writings and inspiring conversation.

February readings turnout a bit less, as two of our members have moved on to new
jobs and locations. To keep the group vibrant, readings flow best with six or more.
Times has changed, the NW has changed. Each member brings new observations
and energy. Always the group is evolving. First timers or long timers, your
contributions and support is always welcomed.

Shoichi Miyamura ( Japan )

~ “Watching the Beam of the Lighthouse” ~  by Shizuo Itoh
Though nothing exists, in my night, the whole night the green beam from the
lighthouse wanders.

~ “The Empty Wait” ~
Then, the sun set but I was still walking to the person who thought I owned
to myself, or to the only memory which had not evaporated.

Poems of Children ( selected by Hiroshi Kawasaki

~ “Saved Eyebrow” ~
having the middle of the eyebrow, I lost my handsome look.

~ “Minna no me” ~
If I borrowed my father’s eyes, what could I see?

Masako Izumi ( Japan )

~ “A Balance” ~
After sweet red wine, I had to always drink dry white wine.

~ “Do not go gentle into that good night” ~  by Dylan Thomas
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

Albert Sussler ( USA )

~ “Hats” ~
The boy raised his hand and when I called on him, he asked me,
How do you say ‘Hage’ in English.

~ “Yomojijukugo” ~
Countless excuses greet adventure

Hiroko Kajita ( Japan )

~ “Coincidence of number 12” ~
No one knew that the 12th would be the last day we saw him.

Everything gets covered and rolled into a authoritarian scroll.

Albert Sussler ( USA )

~ “Rock Garden” ~
No Rock in the center, for nothing is in the center, balance is always changing.

~ “Four Haiku” ~
Light.
Like dawn and dusk glow
most telling illumination
Character of child, of aged.

Focus too far, miss the surroundings

~ “Yojijukugo” ~
Freedom walks with compass

Masako Izumi ( Japan )

Chased by the children’s hands, the happy dreams were fleeing
from place to place in the water.

I hear lake water lapping with low sounds by the shore

You pass though one of those things which eats them here and sticks them out there.

I couldn’t excuse the clouds hanging low over me.

Like Vultures / They arrived / Zipping their black briefcases / Open and shut
