Haiku Poem – アイオワの新年会

tea leaves rustle
kimono flowers tastes emerge
new year blossoms

(Ben version)
ちゃば さわぐ きもの あらわす ねんし さく

(Michiko version)
しんしゅん や きもの で いわう おちゃ の かい

The kimono club of the Japan America Society of Iowa held the first tea ceremony of the New Year. This allowed the club members to wear kimono and haori. During the ceremony, participants took turns first eating snacks and then drinking green tea. Afterwards, the group celebrated by eating shabu shabu.

 アイオワ州日米協会の着物クラブで初釜が行われました。クラブの会員は着物と羽織を着ます。これは、特別の機会でした。式典で参加者は、まずお菓子を食べ、次にお茶を飲みました。 その後、皆さんは、しゃぶしゃぶを食べながら新年を祝いました。
