Poets from America, Canada, England, Holland, India, Malta, Nepal, Norway, Pakistan, the Philippines, Poland, South Africa, Sri Lanka, and Venezuela have all offered their admiration, displaying a wide range of interpretation in their love, affection, and relationships with the world of flora. Flowers are well known to have many different symbolisms, the red rose is often connoted with stories of love, whilst the red of the poppy offers hope and prosperity in light of death. In many cultures, flowers such as the lily are used to symbolise life and resurrection, associating with the sun; in fact, most, if not all flowers will have meaning to someone, somewhere - be it a cultural association, or a personal story.

It is that elusive, concentrated presence, the sudden coming and going of life forms mostly hidden, the awareness of mysteries that can only be given, not forced into being, that both the mushrooms and the poems in this volume point toward. Gathered from the root-zones of many different trees, knife-scraped from rock-face, lifted from dung, spore-flung into air, these gathered mushroom poems offer undomestic, distinctive discoveries to all who choose to join the effort to find them.
