TICKLING  is the gentlest way ~ to

RESOURCE  a TROUT (or a Lady ? !)

OUT  in the Trout Stream ~ they've an

UMBRA  of Green & Mauve ~ gently swaying

THEY TASTE Divine ~ Trout and Almonds !


Thanks for visiting ~ comments welcome ~ Love BRIAN


WHY TROUT ? You may well ask ~ I blame my MUSE

In the UK we have a 24/7 Radio Program CLASSIC FM

and this morning I was was woken by Shuberts String

Quintet THE TROUT which is so evocative. You can 

hear the Trout Stream and feel and taste the FISH !

So my MUSE (knowing I did not have a Poem ready)

said "Brian find a picture and write about the TROUT !"

    An humming that lovely trout music as I write this comment dear Brian - a good subject on which to fashion your amusing acrostic. Great read.


      Thanks FAY ~ I love FISH or all sorts ~ especially SALMON ~ so majestic and so so tasty. Because I'm in a FLAT I cant have a CAT or a DOG and I don't like to see Birds in cages ~ So I have a tank of tropical fish ! Yours as always BRIAN

          Love trout especially when properly prepared - great ode B. I also listen to Classic FM most of the time.

          • BRIANSODES

            Thanks MICHAEL ~ uit's the only station I allow on my car radio ~ and even TEENS admit to enjoying it ! Without CLASSICAL MUSIC ~ there would be no other genres of MUSIC ~ The same is true of POETRY ! Pleased you liked the Poem (great subject !) and enjoy a pice of filleted and nicely cooked trout ~ great flavour ~ Yours BRIAN

            Can you tease one to my belly. I like it Brian.

            • BRIANSODES

              Thanks SL ~we all like having our tummies tickled ~ especially when we're young ! That's why the trout enjoy it ~ and then allow themselves to be lifted out of the water ~ a happy way to go ! Yours BRIAN

            • FredPeyer

              They look mean, but do they ever taste good. Did not have one for a long time. But we've got some of the best marlin, mahi-mahi, and ahi.

              • BRIANSODES

                Thanks FRED I had fish in Hawaii (2000) when I was on a Millennium Trip with my Parents ~ Singapore OZ NZ Hawaii then LA & Home ~ You only do it once ~ But everything tasted better in Hawaii ~ AMBIENCE ~ Yours BRIAN !

                I have caught trout and there is nothing quite like the taste of trout that you have caught yourself

                • BRIANSODES

                  VERY TRUE ANDY ~ While camping we have caught & cooked trout ~ slow fried over a wood fire ~ within hours of it coming out of the water ~ DIVINE Thanks for the memory BRIAN

                    Thanks STEVE ~ Your comments always make me smile ! Next time I post an erotic fishy tale (Especially about MERMAIDS !) I will mark it 18+ to spare your palpitations ! Yours BRIAN
