A Six-Word Memoir® is the story of your life—some part of it or all of it—told in exactly six words.

In classrooms and boardrooms, churches and synagogues, veteran's groups and across the dinner table, Six-Word Memoirs have become a powerful tool to catalyze conversation, spark imagination or simply break the ice.

Here on Six Words, we offer a simple platform to share the short, sharp story of your life, as well as provide daily prompts to share your six-word takes on the topics of our times.

More than half a million short stories have been shared here. Read more about six.

So give six a try—and make your words count.

Crook your finger, I will come.

~Wench's posting of BNL lyrics made me think of an old poem of mine.

a look or laugh
the knowing grin
cast my way
whets appetite

a word in whisper
moan or murmur
pulls me closer
to the edge

you realize
you've just to beckon
crook your finger
I will come

AT '08
