These poems are the ‘wild fruit’ of years of poetic practice. The title acknowledges the degree to which the natural world pervades and has influenced the poet’s thought. It also stresses that we as a species need to attend to and if possible be attuned to the wildernesses that still exist inside us, and outside us, out of which new things arise, and which aid us in developing as a complete individual. The wild is a component of life which needs to be in balance with the tamed, since it is the source of genuine inspiration, Lorca’s ‘duende’, which elevates the spirit and energises the intellect.
