Riddle Me This

This is something I've been thinking of doing for some now.  But with John being in the hospital, then his recovery at home and finally with my computer crashing, I didn't want to start it.  But all is well now (knock wood!) and I can do this!

I wanted to do a weekly blog post with a riddle y'all can try to solve.  Some are easy, others more difficult.  I can even post a hint or 2 in the comment section if y'all are having trouble finding the answer. 

So I figured out to make a button and I added a link on my sidebar.  I'll figure out who to finish it up tonight.

When air is still, and waters calm,
You will find me every place.
But come the wind or falling rain,
I go and hide without a trace.

You no doubt hate the tiny gifts
That I bestow each time I feed.
But as I give I also take
For you contain the gift I need.

I suck at riddles, but it's a good idea.

I'm terrible at riddles but I know that once the answer is given I'll act like I knew it the whole time.

Daria said...

Joanne said...

Scratch...scratch... my old boss used to tell me I would get splinters from scratching my head.
Dang has anyone got it right - I need to see the answer.

Great idea for a series, Joannie...I didn't get the answer, but when you said it, it was obvious. My head hurts.
But bring us more, I need some challenges. :-}
