I'm a round,
And a round,
And a round.
Points at me
Will fly straight
On a range.
Riddle of the Week from Nov 19 2023
A slender snake with glossy skin.
His slender tongue becomes ebon.
He holds his slayer on his head
While he's devoured, 'til both are dead.
No wooden touch, no metal sheen,
His body stolen from the queen.
And once he's gone unto his doom
He steals some shadows from the room.
Riddle of the Week from Nov 12 2023
My arms catch but need no mitt
Lacking elbow, hand and wrist.
'Round and 'round and 'round they go
Always hungry for more grist.
My brethren dot the plain.
And if you need to find me
Your search might be in vane.
Riddle of the Week from Nov 05 2023
A man who is driven, driven to drink.
Sunburned, cold, pale not pink.
Sleeping in a dirty box.
Through the darkened streets he walks.
Though rarely found in a holy place,
He's born again, but not in grace.
Riddle of the Week from Oct 29 2023
Sometimes it's not there at all.
Life needs form and structure,
Without me you would fall.

Riddle of the Week from Oct 22 2023
A pirate's mark upon its vessel,
Perhaps it's born of mortar and pestle.
A coat that sometime's worn on head,
Destroyed by unicorn it's said.
Breathtaking, sets your heart at ease.
Romeo's method or Socrates'.
Riddle of the Week from Oct 15 2023
An eye of jade
May hold a flame,
I swim within a sea that's dry.
A gesture made
'Gainst Ares' game;
A branch of hope that less will die.
A virgin grade
I hope to claim
When tasteful tears I'm made to cry.
Riddle of the Week from Oct 08 2023
Amazing creature with a bullish view.
Horns in on the lost who haven’t a clue.
Treasured guardian and death bringer
That was defeated by a first stringer.
Riddle of the Week from Oct 01 2023
A knight of the night,
A keeper of a keeper,
A Cyclops nocturnal,
Bright-eyed from dusk to dawn.
A giant of a giant,
Ashore at the shore,
Unmoving for the fleet,
Lone sentry when the sun is gone.
Riddle of the Week from Sep 24 2023
Symbol incarnate, I show the way.
An essence, a virtue, I often portray.
Monitor me, usually as large or as small.
Display me in niche, or alcove, or wall.
Enter the service, I'm the image you see.
With a click, I open, for I am the key.

Riddle of the Week from Sep 17 2023
I'm the middle of the forest.
I'm the bottom of the sea.
To complete the longest passes
The athlete runs to me.
I'm the bluest of the blue
And the bass notes of the choir.
I describe how much the expert knows
And how much one can admire.

Riddle of the Week from Sep 10 2023
Near or far or in between
The birthplace of all birthdays.
A cardinal not of the church.
Might be due, though no one pays.
Pick the right petal of a rose,
To orient your seeking gaze.
