Heavenly Mother

Hear My Voice

  1. Queen of Heaven, hear my voice.
  2. Purge my ears of all this noise.
  3. Hear the words rise from my mouth.
  4. Grant relief to quench this drought.
  5. God of Sarah, fill my soul.
  6. Send your breath to patch this hole.
  7. Cleanse my lips with glowing coal
  8. Of the truths whitewashed I’ve told.
  9. God of ’Becca, burn my eyes
  10. Of the pictures stored inside,
  11. Of deception and the lies,
  12. Of the promised fading prize.
  13. God of Rachel, ’midst this doubt,
  14. Plant a seed, that it may sprout;
  15. With your grove, my forehead moist,
  16. Help your servant in my choice.

By Kim Siever

I live in Lethbridge with my spouse and 4 of our 6 children. I’m a writer, focusing on political news, social issues, and the occasional poem. My politics are radically left.

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.
