Haiku in memory of Hōsai Ozaki (died 1926)

Long and transparent like a bottle he was fond and died of it.

(Contrary to widespread Occidental belief
most Japanese haikai are one-line compositions.)

More of my versions of Hōsai can be read here >>>

I read them all. Sublime. Moments of perception, moments of beauty, moments of meaningless simplicity, wrenched from oblivion. Thank you for saving them.

We could've been anything
That we wanted to be
And it's not too late to change
I'd be delighted to give it some thought
May-be you'll agree that we really ought
Two, three, four

We could've been anything
That we wanted to be

Yes, that decision was ours
It's been decided we're weaker divided

Let friendship double up our powers

We could've been anything
That we wanted to be
And I'm not saying that we should
But if we try it, we'd learn to abide it
We could be the best at bein' good guys

Flowers of the earth
Who can even guess how much
A real friend is worth?
Good guys, shake an open hand

Maybe we'll be trusted
If we try to understand
No doubt about it
It must be worthwhile
Good friends do tend to make you smile

We could've been anything
That we wanted to be
Yes, that decision is ours
It's been decided we're weaker divided
Let friendship double our powers

You give a little love
And it all comes back to you
(La la la la la la la)
You know you gonna be remembered
For the things you say and do
(La la la la la la la)

You give a little love
Andit all comes back to you
(La la la la la la la)
You know you gonna be remembered
For the things you say and do
(La la la la la la la)
(Repeat and fade)
