The collection comprises poems of varying themes ranging from pastoral poetry to poetry drawing attention to the contemporary women’s issues.
Poems such as Where Goes The Shepherd, Pronouced and Rain Ate The Silence are rich in nature imageries that have the ability to appeal all the human senses. Verses such as Boots and Naked and I Named The Village focuses on the issues related to women like women’s liberation, violence and so on.
