Lost Red Spruce Pinecone

I saw you up ahead
By yourself
Off to the side

In the still brown winter grass

Scales tightly woven
At the tip
Releasing only halfway

The nearest pinetree
Over 100 metres away

A Squirrel surely brought
You this far and gave up

Now you will survive
Among my family
Of Lake Superior
Rocks and driftwood

Abandoned birdnests
And other found
Forest orphans
