Six Sentence Stories


She wandered barefoot in the meadow, the soft grass caressing her feet.

‘Reach for the sky and cast aside the clouds’ an unseen voice murmured as all around, butterflies danced, birds whistled sweet melodies, and a waterfall splashed a thousand sparkling crystals into the air.

‘Reach high, reach far, and you shall touch paradise’ the unseen voice whispered whilst the sun's’ warm rays kissed her palms.

Her heart was filled with blissful hope as she reached higher and higher, walking on tippy-toes, hands held open in eager anticipation.

'Take care where you tread' said the unseen voice, then she tripped on a rock, fell and broke her arm.

‘Whoopsie’ the unseen voice chuckled, 'I did warn you!'




The cue at Six Sentence Stories is Cast.

    *Hey Paul... trust this sideways comment finds you and the family in good spirits and on the mend**
    ** Keith, dude, see whatcha gone and made me do?***
    *** I think I'll just roam the halls of this virtual school building, like the last day of calls (despite that it's September) and interrupt all the good work everyone has been doing at the Six

    2. just having an anarchy-flash... to be youthful again. although shiftnshake does offer high praise (in a comment at the Doctrine). I credit my own Six today to coming here and over to her post before writing anything. It totally restored my somewhat-recently-absent-sense-of-fun of blogging.

  6. Hi Keith. I was here earlier but had a glitch. I enjoyed your story with its twist at the end. Talk about reaching for the stars. Looks like we have ended up as characters in another's six sentence story. I guess we inspire.
