Help me! I am lost!
I am stranded on an island
Where the sky is blue –
And the ocean around me is, too –
If you get this message in my bottle –
Please find some way to help me –

Notes to this poem…
To be annotated by the end of 2008 at latest.
The O-series of poems are one stanza poems composed before I got onto writing haiku and tanka, and short poetry while in action or traveling by select means like plane or ferry. These poems are 3-9 lines long with at least one rhyming couplet, and not of the short forms just mentioned. For the sake of elegance, I just called the collection One.
