Tram wires cross Northern skies
Cut my blue heart in two
My knuckles bleed down tattered streets
On a door that shouldn’t be in front of me …

Oh whisper me words in the shape of a bay
Shelter my love from the wind and the waves.

--Emily Barker, Nostalgia

A half-pi shawl inspired by the movement of the sea-worn pebbles in the waves.
