it has four short legs
two eyes and a pinkish skin
and a curly tale.

the next one must start
with the answer of last one
in this case like this:

pigs like it so much
because it is disgusting
we sling it to God

etcetera...

Earthly causes rest
come into my wilderness
truth lures you to me

high horse fundament
rising suns in conjunction
tiger flame, yoga fire

When I climb mountains
I descend an endless drop
on rungs of seashells.


What am I?

That one is a challenge. I am going to give it some thought.
Perhaps it is not so much a physical place which she had in mind but a psychic one. :-k

You do not seem to be focused on a particular riddle in here so the only answer that I can come up with is
your Self. We are complex beings.

It was the seashells
Rungs of them that puzzled me
And puzzle me still.

As long as the seashell lives with it's insides hues of brilliant unmatched colors , as on feathers of certain wild ducks,
the seeshell may harbor a precious pearl inside.

I love a challenge and a mystery but sometimes you really need resolution. :lol:

The below are the words which are boggling my mind.

When I climb mountains
I descend an endless drop


Where in the universe can something be climbed yet at the same time be descended? My eyes were closed a lot this weekend trying to conjure up the scene. :x
Perhaps it would take a physicist to unravel this. Once known, I intuit that the seashells would also be explained.

I thought of a Tsunami for some unknown reason. I also thought of the Great Barrier Reef.

Is it possible that there is NO answer to this? After all, there is great beauty in trying to discern the Mystery.

No, but from the beginning, it has conjured up many images in my mind.

Maybe it is not so much about the rungs of seashells but about Who is doing the speaking. Well, duh, arc.

Perhaps it is the Sun which is speaking. As it makes its ascent upward through the sky (climbing mountains), its reflection descends deeper and deeper through that watery abyss touching those rungs of seashells.

I do so love a riddle.

I may be wrong but think of it. Beautiful imagery.
