Tu Bishvat Riddles

Published January 17, 2011 by Eli Stutz

Happy birthday, trees! Here are my Tu Bishvat Riddles:

———

When I am young I hang out with my friends,

I have three possible ends:

To stay as I am,

To tan and to wrinkle,

Or to be trampled on, trickle, and perhaps even sparkle.

What am I?

———

I fall from your palms,

An outing for two,

The last of the seven,

In verses from heaven.

What am I?

——–

I’m pretty in pink,

When crushed a white drink,

Or a balm for your skin,

Although mine is so thin.

What am I?

——-

I’m tough on the outside,

And hard through and through,

By river and cave,

For the righteous I grew.

I sound like a fighter who fights with his glove,

But I’m old as the geezer who plants me for love.

What am I?

———

Got ’em? Puzzled? Either way, go eat some dried fruit!

~Eli
