(Answer: Scroll down to the bottom of the comments to read the “answer” 🙂 )

Bright to behold, but giving light I cannot.

Looking warm to the eye, yet cool to the touch.

Seeming as the brilliant sun above in its glory,

But I am wrenched from that limitless sky’s story.

Unlike the sun, I am grounded below in Its shadow,

To ebb and fade, molting white into the likeness low

Of a small pearly moon—feathery to your hand’s touch,

For the short time before wisps of air carry me in a rush

Off through the currents—to where, I have no control

Until I die to live again, reborn in my new knoll,

And once more shine my lightless brilliance

Across the earth…I am limitless.

What am I?

It’s a tough one. 🙂 Can you guess the answer?

  1. Hmmmmm… Part of me thinks it’s something physical. The first thing that came to mind was a firefly, but I doubt that’s it… Because the other part thinks it’s something abstract or intangible. Like a hope or a wish. So that’s my answer: a wish.

  2. The first half made me think of gold, until it got to the feathery part.

    It could be a reflection of light on water, but again the feathery part is a problem.

    I’m thinking dandelions, which sprout gold, then turn into those white wispy…thingies, and then the wind blows away the seeds, which take root and grow new flowers.
