Riddle me this-Word/Thought Game

Postby Rayoson » Fri Jun 24, 2011 5:58 am

Often enough or not, do I see a riddle or word play game in a forum. So I thought to start one. I'll be posting a riddle in this thread, and anyone can answer it below. Feel free to post your own riddles and etc.

1st:You look to the stars and you see the past, where is the future in space*?

2nd:

Clouds that bring rain can be easily seen, but sadly that isn't where the future lies.

with a siren's voice.
I am often invited to play.
But wherever I go
I must take my bow,
Or else I have nothing to say.

Sounds like a violin.

And as for the original riddle by Rayoson, I haven't a clue. The horizon is only touching the sky, although to the east is the part of the sky that will be coming overhead as it 'moves' west (relative to the earth). But I wouldn't consider that the future. I also thought of time zones, but those aren't really in the sky. I submit my one vote for just telling us the answer.

Never seen.
Ever coming,
Never been.
Daily looked for,
Never here
Still approaching,
Coming near.
Thousands for my visit wait
But alas is their fate
For though they expect me to appear,
They will never find me here.

The future, I think.

I hope I don't have to go and come up with some riddles of my own anytime soon, do I? ^^;

I have to admit this is a stumper, and took me awhile to think it out, but I have to guess vowels A.E.I.O.U

I think I'll have to sleep on this one. Maybe if nobody gets it tomorrow, I might have a guess then.

What does one use, but don't know they are using it?

The Sun, for the future is unknown and blinding as it's own radiance for the future question, and the answer is "Candle" for yours.


I'm round like the sun, shallow as a nest, yet the oceans can not fill me, what am I?

Probably not a halo, but that's the best guess I can come up with for now. As for a riddle of my own, how about:

Going down the aisles, we travel in two's.
We've traveled for miles, but never where we choose.
We have many different styles, but seldom make the news.
Tell me, enigma-philes*, are those enough clues?

*Not actually a word or phrase, but you know what I mean.

Wedding rings? Also, Halo is a great answer sadly that is not correct.

No that's not it but I think I'll rewrite it alittle better for you, as it was still alittle rough:

Sometimes we're in piles, but we travel in two's.
We've covered many miles, but never where we choose.
We have many different styles, but seldom make the news.

I have a couple other guess wheel chairs, shopping carts, the wheel in general. Sadly most of those don't really seem to fit in particular.

Well, we'll wait and see what you guess next, or what Duke or someone else guesses.

Darn, I dislike numerical query's like these, and no the answer is not a ring sadly. Thank you come again.

Even without feminine wiles, you got the answer shoes.

And now I got to think of another one.
