riddle 8

The heavens lie before me,
but usually not as a sphere.

I’m constantly moving,
roving here and there.

I always need a day,
can always use an hour.

By now you should know me.
You’ve seen my starry eyes.

Can you tell me who I am?

  1. Good Morning Thomas :0)

    Is it really easy-peasy as in The Sun?

    The heavens lie before me,
    but usually not as a sphere.

    ~~ CarO ~~ The Sun faces the whole of the heavens

    I’m constantly moving,
    roving here and there.

    ~~ CarO ~~ The Sun roves throughout the whole of the heavens

    I always need a day,
    can always use an hour.

    ~~ Caro ~~ Sunday is the ‘day of the Sun’ and the first hour of Sunday is the ‘planetary hour of the Sun.’

    By now you should know me.
    You’ve seen my starry eyes.

    ~~ CarO ~~ The Sun is pockmarked with ‘Sunspots’ which, like the marks on a potato, are called ‘eyes’.

    Can you tell me who I am?

    ~~ CarO ~~ The Sun.

    Love
    CarO

  2. Humph! I disagree. Why not the first clue?

    A rigid body such as the Earth has a single rotation rate. But since the Sun is made of gas, different parts of it rotate at different speeds. Therefore the Sun will never view the heavens around it as a complete “sphere” but always something to be moved through on it’s forward journey around the Galactic Centre.

    Don’t’cha think? I thought it was brilliant 😦

    Love
    CarO :0)

  3. Hi Thomas,

    Is it an astologer , also known as “StarGazer”?

    The heavens lie before me,
    but usually not as a sphere.
    The night skies only bore me,
    with flat charts I can bear.

    I’m constantly moving,
    roving here and there.
    conferencing is groovy,
    I travel everywhere.

    I always need a day,
    can always use an hour.
    Won’t cast a chart that way,
    without computer power.

    By now you should know me.
    You’ve seen my starry eyes.
    For what the planets show me,
    Can make me sound so wise.

    Can you tell me who I am?
    No, horary won’t tell your name.

    Sorry, just kidding. 😉

  4. Hi Lea,

    Yes. Astrologer is the right answer. Excellent!
    Like your rhymed answer! 🙂

    Hi CarO,

    In away we can say lots of little Suns. But really
    we don’t want to call ourselves gasballs do we? 😉

    best wishes,
    Thomas

  5. Well done Lea! 🙂

    And no, we certainly don’t want to be called gasballs Thomas. But we know what happens to those that do call us that n’est ce pas?

  6. Exactly!

    (mumble grumble . . . mutter splutter . . . . ruddy bird . . . I never did like eagles, I shalll stick to budgerigars in future . . . . I bet they know how to make a proper riddle fit my answer!)

    😦

  7. Hi CarO!

    🙂 Yes, budgerigars are most obliging.

    One drawback, they only know one riddle. It goes something like this:

    What do those big featherless creatures do?
    When they look through? 😉
