SIX WORDS; some big, some small, no more, no less. It’s that time of the week again for six word stories.


Sunshine. Good company. Barbecue. Gas leak.

They tied the knot…too tightly.

She walked on water. My tears.

The tree grew, roots around corpses.

Broken home. Broken parents. Imagination: intact.

Two months adrift. Saved! By cannibals.

They paid in tattoos; words, memories.

  1. Wow! Your six word stories are truly fantastic!! Incredible what some can do with just six words!! 🙂

    1. Well thank you for your kind feedback prospermind ☺

      1. Gladly. I’m looking forward to reading more of these and especially more of your short stories. 🙂

  2. Its beautiful. Loved each and every one of them 🙂

  3. Great use of your six words! Really enjoyed reading these 🙂

  4. Challenge: Next time do six light-hearted, humorous stories. Next time after that do six uplifting stories; you know, instead of the dark side of life. I’ll wait. (P.S. — Your sixes are a brilliant creation for blog fare.)

    1. Thank you for commenting. But you might be waiting a long time for those 🙂
      A few lighter ones make it through.

      1. Maybe I’ll have to create something of my own, then. A “Sweet Six”, or…? 🙂

      2. Okay…As soon as I think of it, I’ll do that! 🙂

  5. Ahh,, you have managed to capture the whole gamut of feelings with these ones.
    Hemingway would be proud of you 🙂

      Gamut a great word – thanks DaRjena 😉

      1. You’re welcome daRling 😝😝

  6. Nice stories, the one about the tree made me think about an episode of This American Life I heard this week, it’s an old one about a massacre in South America

    1. Thank you saul.
      What was the massacre about?

      1. During the Guatemalan civil war a village called Dos Erres was wiped off the face of the earth. Worth listening to the podcast, it’s episode 465: What happened at Dos Erres .

  7. This batch is fantastic!!

  8. Hey, that “she walked on water” was brilliant.

  9. I think my favorite this weeks is “Two months adrift. Saved! By cannibals.” Sounds like something that would happen to me 🙂

    1. Going sailing anytime soon? 😆
      I know what you mean though, the saved not saved, fortunes a tough sob to figure.

      1. Ha, not anymore!

  10. Broken intact – beautiful play! 🙂

  11. Oh these were a tight bunch… that gas leak don’t sound good. Does this work.

    1. Spasibo bjorn…and to answer your question…maybe lol

  13. The one about broken homes and an intact imagination is my favourite.
