Haiku Poem – 和太鼓

Japan club
drum storm erupts
Iowa stirs

(Ben Clark)
わだいこ や あらし の よう に たたき だす

Last spring, I saw a Japanese drum performance. The Japan America Society of Iowa invited the club from Grinnell college to play. The club had both Japanese and American students. One girl from Japan had played since she was little and was incredible. Then, some members of the Japan America Society also played. It was a chance for many people to see another part of Japanese culture. Also, it gave the club members a chance to practice what they had learned.
