(6) Getting Ready to Wait

Getting ready to wait
it's always the hard part
I need the sleep
so I can drive
so I set a bedtime
& settle into bed
but I'm still restless

I want to be on the road
To shake the dust
off my bones
to clear out room
for my autumn heart

The leaves are falling
the last of the weddings
are set to begin
Dresses packed
lists made

But with the coming fall
brings in the coming chill
Maybe my heart's hibernation 
will begin
& shut out
the lonely echoes
from all my unanswered 

Or maybe it will just
bring my soul relief
& sweet release
