    Default Riddle time

    You will find him in the mountains
    And you'll find him in the creek
    He has no mouth ---
    Yet he speaks in every tongue
    He has no ears ---
    And yet will answer everybody
    Always having the final word

    Yes that's correct, I take it you're not familiar with the Pink Floyd reference? All good in the woods thanks for participating in my silliness. Of course the other night owl TNhiker chimed in right away, he's one smart fella I'd have to come with a better riddle to stump him!

    Correct! Somehow I've avoided popular culture for most of my 7+ decades. And continue to avoid...

    Taylor Swift is pop culture.

    Pink Floyd is music by artists.

    I don't get the finding him in the creek part. I don't recall creek echos . . . okay, I take that back if creek echos are referring to the echoy burbling sound of water in some deep rocky areas. . . but then, the echo isn't really in the creek, it's in the walls around the creek. . . yeah, I just don't get it.
    I'm not lost. I'm exploring.

    You remind me of me -- being too picky about words.

    I welcome the day with a show of light, I stealthily came here in the night. I bathe the earthy stuff at dawn, but by noon alas! I'm gone.

    What am I?

    A precious stone, clear as a diamond, seek it out when the sun's near the horizon. You can walk on water due to its power, try to keep it, it'll be gone in an hour.
