Footfalls in the Rain
by Rosaly Puthucheary

However, many of the individual poems are reflections inspired by actual trips made between 1989 and 2001 to different parks of the world. The musings in each poem is grounded in the reality confronted by the poet during her travels. The inroads into her emotion convey the underlying area of tension giving the sequence a certain poignancy.
