  2. What Is It? There is one that has a head without an eye, And there’s one that has an eye without a head. You may find the answer if you try; And when all is said, Half the answer hangs upon a thread. PINS AND NEEDLES

  3. What Is It? Voiceless it cries, Wingless flutters, Toothless bites, Mouthless mutters. What am I? THE WIND

  4. What Is It? Alive without breath, As cold as death; Never thirsty, ever drinking, All in scales, never clinking. What am I? FISH

  5. Steps to Writing a Riddle Poem • Choose an answer FIRST. -Concrete objects (like desks and chairs) are easier to write about than abstract ideas (like happiness or peace) We will use WATER as our example

  6. Steps to Writing a Riddle Poem 2) Brainstorm -Create a list of words related to your answer - For water: clouds, wet, liquid, rain, ice, fish, stream, river, lake, pool, pond, swimming, ocean, ice, glacier, steam, snow, snowman, boats, sailing

  7. Steps to Writing a Riddle Poem 3) Use SYNONYMS - From your answer and list of words, think of some synonyms for your words and your answer. Using a thesaurus may be useful. -Water: bathe, damp, drench, drool, flood, soak, spray, wash -Ice: chunk, crystal, dry ice, glacier, hail, hailstone, iceberg, icicle, sleet -Stream (noun): branch, brook, creek, flood, rill, runnel, tide, watercourse -Stream (verb): cascade, emit, flood, flow, gush, pour, spill

  8. Steps to Writing a Riddle Poem 4) Use Point of View -Try describing the world from the point of view of the object. What does your object see, hear, taste, etc.? WATER-I run down hill. I make canyons. I fall from the sky as rain. People and animals drink me. I evaporate. I am used to put out fires. Fish live within me. Places without me are deserts. I make the crops grow. I cause erosion. I boil at 212 degrees and freeze at 32 degrees. I am used to clean things. I make canyons and valleys.

  9. Steps to Writing a Riddle Poem 5) Describe Using FIGURATIVE LANGUAGE -Use Figurative Language to describe your answer and give clues. This includes using IMAGERY, METAPHORS, SIMILES, ONOMATOPOEIA, PERSONIFICATION, etc. For WATER: -Imagery: The river cut through the canyon before ambling along the plain. -Metaphor: Streams are fish roads. -Onomatopoeia: Water laps the shore. -Personification: The water cooked my egg. -Simile: Pools of water reflect like mirrors.

  10. Steps to Writing a Riddle Poem 6) Make it STYLISH -Use tools such as ALLITERATION, END RHYMES, INTERNAL RHYMES. Think about punctuation and other visual clues (like BOLD letters) to emphasize clues. Alliteration- • Still, I shine like a mirror. • Swift, I slice through stone.

  11. WATER Still, I am like a mirror, Fast, I am stronger than stone. Wet, I can burn you, Cold, I can keep you warm. Life, I can be in the desert, Death, I can be on the riverbank. What am I?
