Leaning tops

The ancient eavesdropper

Leaning tops A canopy
game of tag —
tree crowds
huddled around
a marbled ring —
their leaning tops*
shooting the breeze.

*”Leaning Tops” is actually a term in the game of marbles. When called, a shooter leans in on his/her off hand for leverage over an indentation on any type of surface or obstacle (cited from Wikipedia).
