Weekly What – Week 13

My lucky number 13 (no, I’m not superstitious)! Anyways! Creating riddles is a lot tougher than you might think. The more I wrote, the more I find this to be true. Finding an object or subject that inspires you to write a riddle about it is usually the hardest part. I found another one here and I’m hoping it isn’t redundant (I just can’t remember if I’ve written about it before). Well, here it goes!

An oak and a willow were planted close together. 
Each sprouted and grew in the heat of summer. 
The oak stood taller, the willow rooted deeper;
Both were content while they were next together.

Then came the storm with all its windy weather, 
Pushing the two trees, bending them further. 
The oak cried out as his trunk began to splinter, 
But the willow held the oak without any faulter.

The two can still be seen just about anywhere. 
Even in trying times, they stand without a waver. 
If I am the oak, then who are you, there? 
Don’t think too hard, it’s not all that clever.
