A cloud was my mother, the wind is my father, my son is the cool stream, and my daughter is the fruit of the land. A rainbow is my bed, the earth my final resting place. What am I?

I reasoned the answer to be water. What do you think right, wrong or close enough?

Nice teaser Grilledcheese. As soon as I finished reading the riddle I knew the answer, but realy enjoyed the words and the meaning of the words. Great job. Thanks for posting.

I also guessed water and I counted it right for myself, but rain is really more accurate.

Nice job!

I don't often get riddles, so I was happy to see this easy one to start my day with and get upon first read-through--and a pleasure to read it was!! (btw, I had the answer at the first line--title--but just confirmed it with the pretty poem!)

I just clicked on the answer, then my lightbulb turned on before the page loaded

umm...as far as poems go, this is kind of nice, but as far as brain teasers go, this is pretty dumb. How is the wind the father of rain, and what makes the cool stream the son of rain, and how is a rainbow rain's bed? These are just completely random relationships... don't like this one at all.

I have no idea why I was able to get this one, but rain just popped into my head and I had to laugh when I looked at the answer and seen I was correct. How fun that was!

Thank you, Babe.

You are commenter #01.

And for a lovely teaser. I love the rain and gave this one a top rating.

We had fourteen comments for TOTD of yesterday and this one (today) had sixteen comments for May 02 of 2008.

Hopefully we'll do as well today.

This is teaser is a beautiful concept. I think wind is rain's father because wind drives the clouds to their destination. And a rainbow is its bed in that rain droplets hang, or rest, in the atmosphere, creating the rainbow. Other ideas are welcome.

I got this from the first few words, the rest seemed kinda random.
Now we wait; Will we be flooded with comments, or will we have a dry spell?
catmom*us*
May 02, 2014

Well I was sort of right. I said a raindrop.
BadBunnee02*us*
May 02, 2014

That's four. And the "fourcast" is moderate, with light showers throughout the day.

Another cute teaser. I got it quickly, but wasn't sure if I had it right.

Well, we got only five comments so I guess my "Save The Braingle" campaign is a scratch.

doehead wrote in TOTD of yesterday ("Planets" #26221)

WHO CARES !! (caps theirs, not mine)

Well .... I care ... I care very much about the health, survival, and growth of Braingle.

And if I and only five other people care then I think that is very sad.

But give up I shall not.

Operations will be moved to my Oops!! teaser (#50284). Please join me there.

There should be plenty of room as - thus far - it has ZERO comments and on 13 votes.



BB02 .... as ever.
BadBunnee02*us*
May 02, 2014

That should be "only" 13 votes.

And .... for those of you who don't read more than a few lines of a comment, join us at my Oops !! teaser, # 50284 for a continuation of .....

The "Save the Braingle" project.

Carry on !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

BB02
