maj po  
Good morning! (greeting) (TNK)

st.k (6/97):  {DaHjaj po} "this morning" (lit. "today morning" or "today's morning"). ... Phrases such as {jajvam po} "this day morning" or "this morning" are not common, but they're not ungrammatical either... {wa'leS po} "tomorrow morning", {cha'leS po} "the morning of the day after tomorrow" (literally "two-days-from-now morning"), and so on work quite nicely." 

HQ 10.4:5:  Makes a particular ruckus at dawn. Maltz said he has also heard the phrase {po Ha'DIbaH}, literally "morning animal", used to refer to the {'uSgheb}. He thinks {po Ha'DIbaH} has some sort of literary source, since it is used in operas and plays but not often in everyday speech. Maltz supposed that {po Ha'DIbaH} could refer to a {jajlo' Qa'} as well.
