On Desert Sand

  1. Full of dove sent from above and led by spirit holy
  2. There to stand on desert sand, a place so meek and lowly.
  3. Double score the hunger sore to clear the soul and body
  4. Heart on high and single eye rest in the presence godly.
  5. Break of dawn, the night is gone, return to peace deserted
  6. Through my prayer my divine heir into my heart inserted.
  7. Moonlight time, the summit climb, the thousands fed with fishes
  8. Clear my mind and leave behind all of my selfish wishes

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.
