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.

Could be one or two things

by EnMasse on May 1, 2013   |  FacebooktwitterTumblr

left to convey,
rogue words got in the way
Round a corner in my mind,
I found some dice to pass the time
Rain today reminds me,
I am out of pace with these histrionic times
You can see the sublime in mundane, if you try;
even if you ride -
the short bus all the time.
