Tan Renga Challenge

The goal of Tan Renga Challenge is to write a second stanza of two lines (classical syllables-count 7-7) towards another haiku. The idea is to complete the Tan Renga is by associating  on themes from the haiku.

Our challenge is to complete Ese's haiku on pine trees.   Here are my attempts:


fingertips
stroking scales of pine cone
                - forest memories        (Ese)

each stroke of piano key
caressing suppressed heartache


fingertips
stroking scales of pine cone
                - forest memories        (Ese)

fingertips digging in soil
burying old dreams and new
