Six Word Sunday



In the tradition of Ernest Hemingway, who was once challenged to write a short story in six words.
His six-word story was:  "For sale: baby shoes, never worn."


Each week I will choose a theme. It is your mission, if you choose to accept it, to meet that challenge in six words, no more, no less.
If you like, you may illustrate with a photo, or not.
Punctuation will be your biggest ally.

If you decide to play, please link back to this post, and leave the link to your post in comments here.
If you don't want to create your own post, you can write your six-word story in my comments.




The Theme:
Bridges

Steel spans above water terrify me.




Thank you for playing.

Bridge closed: Must take inconvient detour.

Above the treetops is too high!

Like the one on I65 south before you get to Mobile Alabama! No phone service in some spots going across these swamps and rivers for miles! Scary I tell you!

I'm late to the party, but just wanted to say that the picture you included is pretty scary!

Golden Gate Bridge - never gets old!

Easily connecting people and their worlds.

(although technically I feel the same way you do about them)

Susan said...

Clap, clap, clap!!! Great job, friends!

Bridges threaten, protect, then deliver, sometimes.

Bridges scare me, every single time.
