RonovanWrites Haiku Challenge #66 Pine & Grief


The sap from pine trees

When tracked in the house on shoes

Surely brings you grief!

(another Michigan history lesson, as our State Tree is the Eastern White Pine)

    The stately pine tree – in the corner of the yard – is waving to me

  3. Ah, yes, the sap from different conifers I am well aware can cause grief when it gets on clothes or in your hair. A little bit of peanut butter, or butter works well to remove it, but then you have to get the grease out of the clothes.

      Thank you so much for the grin you just shared with my heart! That makes this worth while. Watch out for those pine cones…


  5. HA! This one should stick to you. (But sometimes that pine smell is nice…not the sticky mess, though)
