Haiku Poem – 善行の有名人

arrive Zengyo famous
hearty reception great attention
celebrity style welcome

(Ben version)
じみのひと ぜんぎょう に つき ゆうめい だ

(Michiko version)
ぜんぎょう に でむかえられて ちょめいじん

I arrived in Zengyo and right away felt famous. Everyone seemed to know that I was coming and wanted to be very nice. As soon as I left the subway station, I met a beautiful young woman at her shop. She welcomed me to Zengyo and seemed to know me through the NACOS family. Then, I met a shopkeeper while shopping for oranges. He was so helpful to me that it seemed like I was really important. I got the impression that everyone in town cares about the NACOS family and wants to see us. All of the attention made me feel like a celebrity.
