This is first and foremost a book about longing…emerging from out of nowhere, and merging into the unnamable. It stands as a collection of poems, paeans, and prose pieces that praise the spaces of intense yearning. This collection was originally conceived as a companion piece to a now unpublished novel, brought forth between 1999 and 2000. These bursts of expression – of language desperately attempting to find form – exist now as a stand alone assemblage of words made flesh. To accompany the 19 paeans of longing the author has included 19 original photos taken from his personal collection.

New Seeds For Earth is the author’s first new collection of poetry in five years. In those intervening years the author wrote almost no new poetry, focusing instead upon his research publications and books. In 2013 a new seed of inspiration bloomed – and produced this book you now hold in your hands. Thirty-seven nameless poems – and twelve beautiful original colour photographs – bring to life the author’s internal world as he tries to reach out to those ‘almost imperceptible spaces of humanity.’ As the author writes in one of his poems – And like a lemon grove of softened beds, of indistinct smells, I feel the flow of the thousands of decisions that have finally brought me here to this moment.
