A Poem by R.J Calzonetti (SinisterPotatoe)

17 haiku poem. For my mom.


The blooms are not as

Beautiful as the roots it

Plants deep in soil


The vineyard’s sweet scent

The grapes it hides under gaze

Of bright mother sun


The greenery leaves

Weaving machinery grasps

The flowers’ heart cords


And strings symphonies

Terpsichorean breezes

Freedom’s Elysium


The clouds ballet found

Shaping formless hurricanes

Playing church organs


Reborn corneas

We watch the world roll over

Itself a new day


Playing with daisies

Mosaics of hazy buildings

Gray, quiet horizons


We ring together

Our offkey hearts into a

Sound music envies


The noisy voiceless

Kilometres bottomless

Thermometers sing


Of the gypsy winged

Unhinged doors to scarecrow hearts

Where we play dreaming


The songs of Autumn

Rhythm to the lithium

Glow of a full moon


And we pass the day

Away, dreaming wide awake

Grasping happiness


People may leave us

Behind, but we still move forth

The wheel spins, still


The water runs, the

Time passes into molasses

In an hourglass


Pastures of grasslands

Alabaster rays that graze

The surface, the face


And sun that drops down

Into an endless spiral of

Black, where stars burn cold


Plants deep in soil

Beautiful as the roots now

Blooms try, smile, still
