in Little Plum Park

full moon last night --
they say it will be 
even better tonight
and perhaps the night after next

on wooden park bench
far from home, leaves waving
steam whistle blows -- antique
locomotive Kyoto Railway Museum

on my right young man
tossing baseball to young woman
recording whole drama on camera
selfie-stick in the current idiom

on my left old couple
unpack minipoodle from snuggly
then open lunchboxes
pouring tea into ceramic teacups

leaves waving, water babbles
in lazy brook among
stepping stones while
pigeons prowl the underbrush
