Poems by seven women from different continents come together in this volume as leaves flying about in the autumnal breeze do, rather randomly; or perhaps by some undefined natural design. The poetic murmur in this book is no lament; it is, rather, an expression of the temerity and persistence of the fallen leaves that seek meaning in life.

Seven Leaves One Autumn invites access to the world of each of the seven poets as she knows it in her own way, a world that is filled with marks of injustices as also of insights that see through possibilities of change. The poems also celebrate life and are a tribute to the surviving trees, leaves, wind and the elements that go into the play of creation.

In this volume Sukrita Paul Kumar and Savita Singh, two important poets from India, have collaborated in creating a symphony of diverse voices. Each poem is rooted in its own milieu; and yet, these poems easily cross linguistic and national divides to call out to the reader anywhere in the world
