A trustworthy thief goes stealing

reaching yet not holding, being and touching without a feeling

upon the folding seas, in fleeting flickers and with fingers short 

or very long, I appear regularly in movies and am sung of in many

songs, by me are colours altered as I fall upon the world without

a sound, and when Ii stand.! on grass earth or sand, it is for none

to bid me no! or move me from my ground, at other times when I

arrive I will take up a good half of everything that goes right round,

yet as it was i the days of yore, and as it will be in the coming days

galore, when you search me will nothing be found!

Joe Maverick

    Hey, I found one I actually never saw before on your first page. Seems to be a riddle poem. I'm not good with guessing riddles but I really like the sound of this poem. Luv, Andrea

    Why you, riddles are always intriguing, but solutions are sometimes hard to come by, Joe. I thought maybe, the wind? (I keep reading this over and over:) Hmmm..a rainbow? The sun? (been hiding lately) Snow...cigar ashes? Waylayee must have found the answer (I looked and cheated) Best to you and yours!! Mikki
