Fish Poem by Kelly Kurt

Hidden beneath reflecting waves
They spend both night and day
With the sub aquatic mandate
Be predator or prey

In briny deep or shallow ponds
Variety is rife
Shape, size and color myriad
A festival of life

‘Round thermal vents or Arctic ice
Some form has found its niche
For guppy and leviathan
A place is found for each

I’d like to travel far and wide
To see each kind of fish
My favorite place to see them tho
Deep fried and on a dish

    A wonderful poem which leaps from the scientific to a surprising gustatory ending! Kudos to the author. My favorite fish are Brookies rising to a trout fly. (Report) Reply

    Fly fishing is too much work for me.: -) I prefer a bobber and a picnic basket. Thank you for your kind review.
