If only all of you could join us tonight… all our faraway poets whose hearts and words joined on the Queen Mary, and all who follow us here. Our dear friend kris moon, (Kris Kondo) staying with us here in Pasadena has sprouted seeds of her art and poems all over our home, the vines of our imaginations grow together so fortunately, having time and space to spread and grow as friends. Such a time so precious, I wish it for all of you. She is now painting as many regional poem fans, haiga art, with the poems of the regioanal poets, especially those of Southern Ca poets from our book, they will be here when poets arrive tonight, Friday, August 23 to read the full text of our Regional Book. kris will also present a small program of her own art, and poems, in addition to giving as many fans to poets as possible! For the regional reading, I asked each poet to send a haiku with a place name in their region, and one with a regionally distinctive interval such as migration, bloom, fest. And a footnote that adds even more connection to giving a sense of the region for those who are not familiar with the place. While the poets and poems of the fantastic regional reading succeeded in bringing the regions strongly alive to us, tonight we will read aloud every word of the book including the footnotes. Whatever group we gather, for our dinner salon will add their voices to the expression of our international poetic oneness and variety. As many of you as possible will be awarded your own poem on a fan from kris.
