[Cross-stitch is a popular form of counted-thread embroidery in which x-shaped stitches in a tiled, raster-like pattern are used to form a picture... the stitcher counts the threads in each direction so that the stitches are of uniform size and appearance]
There is a new disaster in the news (there always is),
My carefully stitched heart is torn into hundred flying pieces (again),
I look at the shiny blue curtains with yellow flowers (across the blue green oceans),
And think if the news got you too (again).
A travel memo was sent: Let's learn cross stitches again.
