At the door my father stands

Up, up, up ‘is he up yet?’
Blurred voices from below.
Brush handle drums the ceiling,
clock ringing upon a biscuit tin.

A self created downey cave,
protects of what is assumed from the crystallised dew.
Slowed cars, tyres squeezing, punishing compacted snow.

Awakened, vision clears,
shivers fight my movements.
The joyous sound of the children.
At the door my father stands,
will walk me there hand in hand.
