Can anyone guess my riddles? :D


 


---------


1.


To romanticize me is your human need


and on my wings your souls will pierce the veil


yet on your carcass I will gladly feed


and opportunistic scavenger prevail.


 


 


 


2.


In the east and the south where the tall grasses sway


I sleep and I stretch and I run and I prey


the largest and strongest of all felidae


 


When I open my eyes, it's best that you flee


for my gleaming white teeth are the last thing you'll see


...did he who made the lamb make me?


 


 


3.


I'm flickering flittering in the night sky,


lighting your way into humid July


humming and settling on dew-soaked grass


please feel free to frolic by light of my ass.


 


 


4.


In the night my prey I win,


I stalk to feed my kits and kin


but in the day, I sleep within


 


In darkness yet my eyes will shine


in eastern lands I'm quite divine


Are my tails one, or are they nine?


 


5.


Deep, damp forests hide my light,


and travelers I tease


the honey mushroom will ignite


from feeding on the trees


 


Though I light your way by dark


you must not follow me


if you hear my laugh or bark


sly kitsune-bi


 


 


6.


She's rational where I'm fanatic


it's true, my life has been traumatic


I'm often quite overdramatic


 


Hysteria and boyish smiles


my partner gets me through my trials--


I'm pretty sure you know my files!


 


 


7.


She means you no harm; please try to believe her


a voracious housemate but so misunderstood


By the sun and the moon, by turns she will spin


in the corner, the attic, the forest, the grass


some say she wrote the world and will read it forever


 


If you dare to dance with the answer to the riddle


then climb through the lines and meet me in the middle


 


Let's show some respect and admit that she's clever


from the timorous wolf to the red hourglass


and the shy little lurker with the red violin


I'd defend them all if I somehow could,


though it's easy to guess that my favorite's the weaver.
