Rainbow Tears

  1. Roses drip as trembling lip longs for the words to say.
  2. Embers hide the pain inside from fasting, reading, pray.
  3. Sunshine streams from horrid dreams of nowhere left to go.
  4. Clover struck by mournful luck and nowhere left to grow.
  5. Azure skies with teary eyes stare at the door now locked.
  6. Lilacs weep at wounds so deep, love and compassion blocked.

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 am a political economy student at the University of Athabasca, working on my second undergrad degree.

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.
