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.

Green glow of evening skies enough?

Took this pic a while ago walking in the woods. Bench was in a distant part of trail , placed as if they knew you would want to take a break from hiking. There's a nice little brook rolling down the rocks just out of view of the camera, too. Provides a soothing gurgly water feature. Bench isn't green, but it is real.

(oops, forgot the pic)
