The RidSoC seems to have had very little to do of late, to be honest. To remedy that, http://www.enigmagraphics.com/riddles / brings you these teasers.

Anyone interested - here we go!

1. I never was, am always to be,
None ever saw me, nor ever will,
And yet I am the confidence of all
Who live and breathe on this terrestrial ball.
--Anonymous

2. I am the black child of a white father;
A wingless bird, flying even to the clouds of heaven.
I give birth to tears of mourning in pupils that meet me,
and at once on my birth I am dissolved into air.
--Anonymous, ancient Greece.

3. What we caught we threw away;
what we didn't catch, we kept.
--the riddle put to Homer by fishermen of Ios,
said to have caused his death.

Answers coming up tomorrow, unless you check the site beforehand Emotion: wink

I'd say 1-Tomorrow, 2- Smoke ,3-Lice ..?

Emotion: starBut the first one can be also "hope"..
Good for you, DjB! 3 out of 3! [Y]

I'd say quite a few answers could fit the first riddle. I thought of "future" myself, while both of yours fit equally well. It is the same concept!
