Housewarming

In my dream I was the first to arrive
at the old home from church. Wind
and night had forced through the cracks.
I pushed inside, turned on lamps,
lit a fire in the stove. Frozen oak

and brothers, grandparents, all my relatives,
none dead, none missing, none angry
with another, all coming through the woods.
