I am so small, and that climb is so high. There is no railing.
What makes the difference? A guiding hand to help me hold my balance and keep me from filling backyards while I take one step at a time.
What if I can not find that hand? What if I am alone? What if no one, will help me?
I still can, even if it’s on hands and knees. I won’t give up, I won’t turn back.
But how I pray for that one hand.

I find briefness powerful, yet elusive. In the last few weeks, I have taken to trying to cultivate it in my own work by writing six word stories.
It’s an exercise I am enjoying.
Do you write six word stories? Or some other kind if micro fiction?
What form of short prose do you find most impactful? I would love to know the answers to these questions, and what you think of the three I share with you today.
