Really Really Short Stories

Some time ago I came across this concept of writing very very short stories in just a couple of sentences. Yes you read it right. The story is just a couple of lines in length, yet it conveys a meaningful story. It is a sort of innovation in story telling. When I read it first, I was amazed by each one of them. I am sharing a few of the shortest stories I have read for you to decide. To really appreciate the stories, pause on each one for a moment before you move to the next one.

Those who had coins, enjoyed in the rain.
Those who had notes, were busy looking for shelter.

Man and God both met somewhere,
Both exclaimed – “My Creator”

He asked are you-“Hindu or Muslim”
Response came- I am hungry

The fool didn’t know it was impossible-
So he did it.

“Wrong number”, Said a familiar voice.

What if God asks you after you die-
“So how was heaven??”

“They told me that to make her fall in love I had to make her laugh.
But every time she laughs, I am the one who falls in love.”

We don’t make friends anymore,
We add them.

It rained heavily last night,
Said the pillow.

Hope you enjoyed reading them. If you think you can also come up with some brilliant ones, please do share.
