Time – Six Word Stories #13

Here are my six-word stories on ‘time’ – a few collective stories, and a few individual ones.

——– School ——–

Sand clock, once entertained, now betrays.

He’s running around to avoid deadlines.

Clock ticks faster during morning rush.

Same appears slow in bored benches.

——– Stalled? ——–

Procrastination steals time from ‘conscious’ us.

No use in recalling ‘last’ time.

It has already become ‘lost’ time.

Now is always the best time.

Time flies, but you’re the pilot.

Your time will come. Start working!

— Love

They hiked to hilltop, long back.

That trek presented their best days.

Busy schedule reduced their hangout time.

Quarantine blessed them with quality time.

— Accidents

The moment was crucial to both.

She has an interview at 09:00.

He’s on-road counting his final moments.

Lifeline is just like the timeline.

Once gone, both will never return.

Time’s play… she rolled perfect dice.

His saviours… time and missed interview!

— Time Travel

Life’s bounded by time and space.

Time travel researchers fancy breaking barriers.

He easily travelled ages through books.

— Individual Stories

Only master that treats everyone equally!

A gift that may soothe pain!

Time is priceless. Spend it wisely.

Time devices fail, but time never.

Time leaves its footprints as lessons.

Me-time… uncompromised part of my schedule.

Timeliness shows your respect for others.

First meaningful learning was telling time.

Evergreen hits linger fresh after decades.

Time up… the most dreaded word!

Time to time, trot the globe.


Lack of time! Hence, no pictures!

      I’ve become quite obsessed with 6-word stories, Nima. Thank you for your kind words!

      I wish I could’ve come up with such pleasing excuses when at school. 😁
