The Eagle has landed
"The Eagle has landed”

Apollo 11 lunar module named “Eagle”
prediction defied naysayers ain't no boon
dog gull announced successful landing
while voice of Ole Blue eyes did croon

in Sea of Tranquility on moon
sometime about high noon
halting advancing armies
from one after another platoon

Premium Member Invented My Own Planet
invented my own planet 
when I was a girl of nine
created it out of the banks 
of my favorite things

character traits needed on all planets
powered by enthusiasm and love
I began hovering over the backyard at age...Read More

When I'm done with you, you'll need an undertaker.
Because of what you did, you will meet your maker.
You had an affair with my daughter but neglected to tell her that you have a wife and kids.

Premium Member To the Heavens For Hope

Back again ...

Her daily hour of hope ...
She came every evening to The Hem ...
Just a big hole in the earth, really, a barren canyon of dust,
Perched on the south edge of the Congo, near the Zambezi River source.

Premium Member A Cruel End Game
From the dark side of Love

She was the nadir of affection
like a scorned lover, hell bent on revenge.
She was still like a fresh flower, sensuously perfumed,
a sight for sore eyes, lips full, inviting, titillating;
body curved in the right places, tall...Read More

Lost Silhouettes
*FICTION - lost love song

Maybe, I didn’t know what you needed
In all of the things I missed
Maybe I didn’t read between lines
Every time that we kissed

Maybe, I couldn’t reach you beyond the wall
Protecting you from taking a fall
Maybe I didn’t...Read More

Watched by folks worldwide umpteen

Some say it a passion, some religion
For it’s addicted many a region
The noisy stadia with facilities many
And the commoners suffer in agony

Seventeen is the Lucky Number
Part 1

Although I am a Sagittarian,
That does not make me a barbarian:
I am quite as egalitarian
As anyone born an Aquarian,
But I am not a vegetarian,
My birth was not, in fact, caesarian,
And I do not ingest valerian!

Part 2

Ten lamenting men supine,
Whose...Read More

forgetting how
to do this
i wake everyday
with a tabula rasa
an amnesia of how
to kiss

my lips since
have dried
and cracked
but dreams 
are truer than 
life's fiction

no need 
for lipstick
and you can
curl your tongue
don't wake me just
remind me what to do...Read More

Her eyes are vacant; her heart's

Hail the Emperor Gauis Tommaso
In his gold chariot with a white horse
Popular with Romans who loved him so
For bringing in lax laws he did enforce.

He freed all the slaves and ended the games
Twelve senator's plotted to overthrow
A spy in the...Read More

I hate robocalls
I turn off damn ringer,
telephone still buzzes
twenty four seven
eight days a week
automated telephone calls

digitally recorded message
perfectly spoken English
differentiation to distinguish
"FAKE" simulation
all bot impossible
totally immune to escape

gagging hospitable invective
electronic jawboning immunized
against antipathy, cruelty, enemy,
hostility, insecurity, pleasantry
Yukon run to tallest mountain

Let me tell you...
They are big, they are tall
They are tiny they are small.
Teeth, that need brushing, 
Breath that needs gum.  
Toe jam like jelly?
And a big belly?  
They live at the school in books,
the museum on field...Read More

Parallel Selves, Part II
...No longer could they blame it on others,
or chock it all up to society,
their losses, their failings, due to their choices,
a hard truth, and many were not ready.

then find a gun, take a...Read More

Parallel Selves, Part I
Like the author my name is David Welch,
I write this poem as a warning to you
from a universe that was like your own,
so identical that it would confuse.

An infinite number of realities,
yes, the multiverse really does exist,
I see you are...Read More

There is often a lie behind 'I didn't mean it'
 A cruel intention in the giving of a gift,
 A selfish motive behind a compliment,
 A betrayal in a kiss.

“The Wolf’s Pockets”

Virginia knows 
what’s written 
in the mass of a rock
the heaviness of words
not soluble
anchored to life
that does not float

A Wolf swallows Woolf whole
Hungry for something -
“other than”  ;

what is not seen 
is swimming below

Love Limerick

They said love at first sight is pure fiction?
I beg to differ, with this interdiction.
Your heart merrily sings,
You see a big diamond ring.
Walking down the aisle is more than a prediction!

The Soul Is Immortal - - -
can't be killed
will live on
in infamy
through eternity
if you have lived
a good, clean life.
It's an energy source
that transcends death,
moves through dimensions
with a heavenly flow
that has you questioning
time tested theories
based upon suppositions
that delve into
supernatural science fiction
