Bare Branches Touch

Carpe Diem Tan Renga Challenge #74, Jackie Le Poidevin's "Bare Branches Touch"

Bare branches touch
Over the lane where we walk,
Fingers entwined.

A nice and very romantic scene with a great comparison (bare branches touch/fingers entwined) in it. Really a nice haiku to start our Tan Renga with. The goal is to write the second stanza of two lines (7-7 syllables) to complete or continue the scene started in the haiku (or the first stanza).

Here is my (our host's) attempt to make this Tan Renga complete:

Bare branches touch
Over the lane where we walk,
Fingers entwined.
  
                                 (Jackie Le Poidevin)

no empty nest feelings finally

together again just the two of us                  (Chèvrefeuille)


Let me see how the muses lead me on this

Bare branches touch
Over the lane where we walk,
Fingers entwined.              (Jackie Le Poidevin)
