Half Cord

Snow squeaks on wooden porch boards
Minus one, sun reflects from white drifts
outdoors, the world is flushed, blushing
invigorated, yet
no stir of wind.
Sweet smell of split maple
Black oval sunflower seeds sink deep below the feeder
Snow melts on hearthstone
from the warmth of the flame
A half cord should last a few days
