Standard deviations From drowning In a well To soaring above The canopy The densest forests  Concealed visions  Most comforting,  Fragments strung, Quilts An illusion of necessity Submerged,  Blizzards paused Business subsides Grasped ladder Glistening wings  Buoyant with gravity  Talons open Atonement in clouds  Image taken from Pinterest



Lacking electricity Flowing through talons Stagnant interactions Conducted in stale skies Each flight back here Failing to acknowledge Routes flown Hearts shown -- 'Where were you I sat waiting, But you chose still To return with your back Faced away from us,' Although drowning Duty, elasticity, Prevents you From leaving Your perch Always available Photography … Continue reading Elasticity


Very excited about my first collaboration!! My haiku is the 2nd 🙂 Also, The Eyes + Words writers community is a wonderful place to network and meet other aspiring writers.

Eyes + Words

An Eyes + Words Writers Group Creation

Written byPharaoh Maktuk, Deah Caldwell,
Mil Williams, Andrew James Blair and Santore Imelda

The internal manifestation
Of fear, love, spirit–
Glimpses into future lives

Descend from the clouds
Still here, everywhere
Dreams never ceasing

External – aside
Faithfully saw sadness hang
Free the tree of shame

Outwardly, yet not
A struggle, a strive, to net
Thrive beyond survive

Spun in labyrinth
Straddling hope, persevering
Rain erodes– darkness

In a World Unmanifested

Immersed in isness Wind gently creates ripples Streams happily flow Shimmering wings induce Trance of inner-standing Still-- ethereal Blessed audience One of many fairy sisters She decides to create Seen or unseen fate Amongst fictional or real worlds Audience converges Time stripped out of space Moon looms in silver sublime Fluttering, leaving Photography by Rhapsody Boheme … Continue reading Audience

The Maze

Inspired by Westworld Here you are The bars On your cage Are brittle   Your blood Ravishes the sharks Circling around the Mausoleum Rivers of blood Splashing around  But you are here And they are there You have reached the center Unnecessary conformity Encompassing all Improvisation and association Incomplete loops Steam blown engine   Patronizing … Continue reading The Maze


Hesitant, peering  Through the window Resistance brought regression Choose to wave the wand Imminent return Enter the catapult again Exit of still sanctum  No label or clear signs Only whispers to guide  Time is a choice Spent decisions In the labrynth, but-- There is always a way back here  Image taken from Pinterest
