The assembled group of HNA attendees, the international poets, present their regions. Each group, each region, came to the forefront and spoke the poems of their region.
Thanks to Stevie Strang for this photo of the Regional Reading in action. Such an amazingly satisfying experience. All the international poets read beautiful haiku expressions of place. I was thrilled with the experience. The book, Rick’s music the poets came in groups of regions and read individually emerging from that sense of place, it satisfied my vision and excitement. So happy with this. Thank you, international poets on the Queen Mary!
