As we all should know by now there's a lot going on with riddles lately. One major issue is that we can't really compare or measure quality. Regarding the so called quality issue I came up with the following idea:
I'd like some people who feel up to the task to write a short riddle about something very simple and basic. We should also define some loose borders to make the riddles somehow comparable. So I'd suggest the following:

- Any technique if not too obscure, keep it simple
- Min 4 to max 8 lines
- Be creative

For the sake of those who only want to solve I've put the intended solution in the spoiler tag below.
The solution must be:
Don't think of it as a contest but more as a way to see how different people handle this task differently. We will without any doubt learn a lot from each other and hopefully every participant will get the chance to receive proper feedback.
