Riddle #1

Invest time and gain

It doesn’t equal wisdom

But it’s a good start

 

Riddle #2

Where you feel at ease

When the world is cold, it’s warm

Shared, even warmer

 

Riddle #3

Traveling through time

Rousing attached emotions

They play in our heads

 

Riddle #4

Vocal and silent

Basis of relationships

It’s there if you care

Riddle #5

With cold and trembles

Invisible assassin

Don’t let it grip you

 

Riddle #6

Source of hope and peace

Many faces, many names

Love connects us all

 

Riddle #7

Raw yet exquisite

Gaze too long and you’re spinning

Shines through every soul

 

Riddle #8

Concealed like a trap

Playful when planned from the heart

She smiled, ‘twas pleasant

 

Riddle #9

Like stars in the night

Guiding wandering souls home

Marbles of delight

 

Riddle #10

Force that stands us up

Look around, it’s everywhere

Some days it finds you

 

Riddle #11

Expressed honestly

East to West, even broader

Contagious beauty

 

Riddle #12

Illusion’s demise

The sword to a swordsman’s fate

Pure heart’s native tongue

 

Riddle #13

Deceptively brief

The sweet and sour memories

Life’s living in it

 

Riddle #14

Life gives to you straight

Shy away and you won’t grow

Are you up for it?

 

Riddle #15

A curse when fear rules

A blessing when love provides

Leave it frequently

 

Riddle #16

A private moment

The closest point to silence

Sounds caress gently

 

 

Riddle #17

Never spent in vain

Always soothing and joyous;

Inspired and grateful

 

Riddle #18

Fools oft have plenty

Comes with good preparation

Champions exude

 

Riddle #19

Built slowly through deeds

rarely given completely

Once earned, cherish it

 

Riddle #20

Dark horse with bright dreams

Envision and realize

You will become one

 

Riddle #21

Foundation of your dreams

Felt within, by others seen;

Leave no room for doubt

 

Riddle #22

Testing heart and will

Paints our experiences

Ultimately yours

 

Riddle #23

Never lie or cheat

Always a better version

Mirror tells the truth

 

Riddle #24

So tender yet fierce

Soft to senses in all layers

True mistress of life

 

Ridle #25

By chance encounter

Becomes a constant in life

Always there for you

 

Riddle #26

Spring of momentum

In one place yet everywhere

Exploring both worlds

 

Riddle #27

Chosen when inspired

Reaction has more value

We are both winning

 

Riddle #28

Feigned by most, selfish

You’re worthy, but who has it?

Drought and storms reveal

A collection of riddles

A collection of short riddles written in haiku form (5-7-5). The solutions to the riddles may differ from the author's, as the poems' primary purpose is to explore human virtues and inspire self-reflection. As such, these poems deviate from the traditional haiku topics and lean more towards senryu form, though due to their positive nature they are not easily categorized in one direction or another, they are simply written to express thoughts and trigger them.
