Analysis of Angel In Waiting



What stirs within the buried heart,
what lies beneath the whim

What Seraphim have yet to pray,
 what sinners yet to sin

What hides within those thoughts that stray,
what leaf remains unturned

What stirs within the buried heart,
what voice unclaimed—unheard

(Dreamsleep: December, 2021)
