A Harvest of Love

  1. All alone, yet there he was, knelt beside another.
  2. Speaking soft, touching slight, trying not to be a bother.
  3. Reaching out, screams of pain, in a way he felt so distant.
  4. Carry on, hold on more, it’s but another instant
  5. Hours drag on, the dusk is gone, and dawn begins to rise
  6. The stars now sleep, the birds now peep, and pinks now fill the sky.
  7. The sun wakes up, the earth warms up, the snow begins to melt
  8. It isn’t long b’fore the waited song amongst the two is felt.
  9. Years gone by. Sorrow, loss, and longing often lived
  10. Within the hearts, beside the souls, without a want or give.
  11. But now the time is quickly here and all these flee away
  12. Replaced with joy and peace and love, all which plan to stay.
  13. And then it’s gone, the pain, the work, and all the world seems still
  14. With all else now just leaving home, the two embrace their thrill.
  15. And now when two were once made three, and three were then made two.
  16. There stood again the two now three, and three with life anew.

By Kim Siever

I live in Lethbridge with my spouse and 5 of our 6 children. I’m a writer, focusing on political news, social issues, and the occasional poem. My politics are radically left. I recently finished writing a book debunking several capitalism myths. My newest book writing project is on the labour history of Lethbridge.

I’m also dichotomally Mormon. And I’m a functional vegetarian: I have a blog post about that somewhere around here. My pronouns are he/him, and I’m queer.
