Sunny morning -
a sparrow trying to keep
its mouth shut

Here is one more version from my sketchbook:

Sunday morning -
i tired sparrow going
to say: "chirp?"

August vacation -
empty mailbox got wet
in late summer rain

I took off my word verification. Let's see what's happening.

Do you remember old scandal where email-passwords "unveiled". One lonely lady heaved: "Oh no, now everyone sees that I never receice a single email..."

This next one is for Bill, I borrow it here from Bill's comment-box because I like the idea:

lonely mailbox -
tinned spam
got an off day?


More stuff around this idea:

a spy-master
short of unused stamps -
accountable profit center

Making a problem

calm night
week after my birthday
a calm morning

At 6 o'clock I walked towards Turku Central Railway station. A sunny morning. Build up a threeliner in my mind when walked:

a calm night -
now a calm morning
a week after my birthday

Rised R3 as R2, and I did not accept R3 just something like "August".

In my mind the word "calm" sounds somewhat 'cold'. Is it? Neither cool?

Anyway weather was calm. But what about a short night?

A short, calm night just a week after my birthday & now also a calm morning.

:-) If "short" then perhaps calm only once.

R3 got an "a" in front of it. And the word "short" did not succeed? Did i got a problem?

When seated in the train and a got a nice cup of coffee I wrote once more my final solution:

short night
not a week after my birthday
a calm morning

Whose problem? Approaching Helsinki, the train making 160 km/hour. We'll get a nice summer day anyway.
