Six words
 
I'm in a rut of ennui so I was thinking an exercise in six words might be entertaining. A while back, I stumbled across "Six Word Memoirs" which was a very nice collection of pithy almost-poetry almost-memoir by everyday folks - see http://www.smithmag.net/sixwords/

So, if you have six words about life here or, whatever, in whatever language you choose, share them :) It's fun, or maybe I'm just so bored that my idea of fun is a bit on the square side....

Switzerland, Schweiz, Suisse, Svizzera or Svizra
Just call it what you will
But for goodness sake not 'Swiss'.


Okay, 3 lines of 6 words... sorry :p

Re: Six words
 
A variation is to build the poem/memoir using the six words, but in pyramid form. IE: first word must contain one letter, second word has two, up to the sixth word having six letters.

Summer breeze coming from the Tagus.
House martins flying in pink skies.
Pale tea roses over my head.
The dog resting underneath my knees
Avó calling us to go inside.
