Monday's Riddle! On the Dark Side...

Here's Monday's Riddle! Can you guess the theme this week? Depending on the time of day, the answer could be right next to you ; ) ~ F

Always there, right with you, reflecting back all you do. I am dark, though made of light, and almost always within your sight. I follow along while you run, and when you're quiet, we're both done. There are times when I will go, but not for long, as you well know. Once the sun pops out again, then I'll be your closest friend.

Who am I ?  

I already gave you a clue! 
hint, hint : ) 


  1. I am terrible at riddles. Water? Rainbow? Waterbow?

  2. I am guessing it is your shadow.

  3. Hello - I came to visit after Donna Yates promoted your blog in her latest post. I was very intrigued by the idea of the Monday riddle and the way you incorporate it into a weekly theme.

    I think the answer this time is your shadow.

    Hope to be a regular - Sharon

  4. It has to be your shadow. Could it be that I actually got one right?

  5. +JMJ+

    A shadow, of course! =D

    By the way, I particularly love the line, "I am dark, though made of light." Very lyrical!

  7. I am thinking of that wonderful poem by Robert Louis Stevenson... "My Shadow." I have a little shadow that goes in and out with me/and what can be the use of him is more than I can see...

  8. I suck so bad at this ... shadow? :-)

  9. "I have a little shadow that goes in and out with me,
    and what can be the use of him is more than I can see"


    My Shadow is a poem I read so many times over the years to my daughter as she was growing up, it's still a treasured favorite <3

  10. Me and my shadow is a lovely old song, you have a great site, its a pleasure. agman

  11. It must be your shadow. I remember Fred Astaire dancing with his to Me And My Shadow. Delightful!

  12. I'm with Petty...I'm thinking a shadow, or your shadow. ^_^
