Response from Danielle Matthews to Wilderness Workshop

Danielle Matthews who has graced the Stirred stage many a time provided us with her response to our Wilderness workshop which you can view here: https://stirredpoetry.wordpress.com/2015/10/23/wilderness-workshop/

Getting Lost

With certain tread I
step out into uncertainty
over leaves brown and
fallen, under trees bare
and strong in silence.
I follow the ice-crisp
canal, its locks frozen
from disuse as it
weaves through this
forgotten wilderness.
My aim to get lost
is soon achieved
and my legs take me
far, far away over
stiles and sobs.
Too soon the undergrowth
stops.
I step back into the
world bewildered and
bemused, cleansed.
