Wrapped in a baby blue duvet
the grandmother sits ,
keeping warm .
Her rosy cheeks and
soft white hair
make her look like Mrs Christmas
waiting for OH to finish his annual rounds.
Shoppers pass by laden with gifts
and don't notice 'their' grandmother.
She snuggles deeper ,
under a baby blue duvet,
in a doorway
on Oxford street at Christmas..
