One possibility would be to fill the crack with beeswax. Since the crack may continue to grow, you can add more wax as needed. The wax is already a honey tan color. If your pine is stained darker, you might be able to darken the wax as well. Don’t know how—trial and error would be my approach. The softness of the wax should allow the wood to move at will, because it’s possible it might try to shrink back together (not so likely, I guess).
