"We live in a world of constant noise, circumscribed by one of utter silence - that of plants. The central theme of the 12 poems in the initial sequence of this fifth collection is the unheard, complex processes of the green world. A further 32 poems on individual plants - from aloe to calamus, foxglove, hemp, oleander, papyrus, rattan, tumbleweed, wormwood and yarrow - give rise to a wide range of narratives.Some of the 14 poems in the final section - Songs and Observations - are personal sketches, and some are on a wider canvas.David Morphet's first two collections, "Seventy-Seven Poems" and "The Angel and the Fox", addressed themes of human consciousness, love, ambition and loss. His third collection, "Animals from A to Z", explored what the animal kingdom means to us, visually and imaginatively. His fourth collection, "39 Ways of Looking", sought glimpses of the authentic, examining the vision of artists and others who, in conditions of tyranny, preserved a vision of truth and integrity."
