Does anyone know, what or who I am, can you answer this riddle of prose.
I have left clues to both read and see. So who am I


 


 


A riddle for thee.

I stand watch under the desert sky,


as I have watched with amazement the passage of time.


I have seen both good and evil, and


Many a tale, I could tell, if I only had voice to speak,


or the ear of one that could hear.


Silence has locked this beauty within,


as another day passes with the wind.


Who am I that could weave this tapestry of words,


and tell you the secrets of this desert world,


for many dreams have passed under the scrutiny of my ever watching eye.


I weave a web of intrigue,


So look and listen if you can,


for if you ever come to this desert land


you may get a glimpse of me.


I will leave you with a clue.........


Native Americans use me....


What Am I


Who am I......


I have a name...


But today, I am a spider.

Hey everyone, the riddle has been solved and Peggy guessed correctly that I am a dreamcatcher and my name is Iktomi ....a spirit of old. Thanks for playing along.
