Author(s): Paula Green
In the spring of 2015 Paula Green walked Queen Charlotte Track, her poet’s eye taking in the beauty of her surroundings and the history of the land. Early on the final day she slipped and injured herself, and had to walk out for nine hours on her broken foot – a journey made more dramatic by the ongoing storm.
To get through, and alleviate the pain, she composed poems in her head. The resulting poems are urgent, energetic, obsessive and compelling. Full of pain and joy, they take us on a journey though wild beauty, mind and memory, and a storm of words.
