Blooming, Bouncing, BeginningRiddles are little poems or phrases that pose a question that needs answering. Riddles frequently rhyme, but this is not a requirement.
I'm a blooming, bouncing beginning
A name not bound to only one meaning
Somewhere I fall prey to time and gravity
The other alternating the ups and downs for eternity
The last needs no ladder to rise above its original captivity
To poets a life cycle is brought
To pilots a lifeline/lifesaver they resort
To needy throats surely a life-support
Rumpelstiltskin I am not
But a bouquet for you who got me sort
AnswerThe word 'spring'.
As the flowering season: the buds bloom and die out/fall to the ground, and usually metaphorically means a start of something.
As the elastic body/device: theoretically it could stay in motion forever, and is used in pilot seats to eject them to safety in emergency situation.
As the water source: rose to surface through capillary effects, thirst-quenching for people in the desert.
