The theme of the edition revolves around the sunset as a phenomenon of inspiration, where sunlight illuminates the upper layers of the atmosphere and light is refracted in all directions creating all blue and gold metallic. Also from different mythologies is in the afternoon when the spirits of the dark arise, where a change of mood is generated towards the night, where the subject is dominated by the passion, more than by reason. Somehow also the sunset and this change towards the dark, is reflected in the tone in which the poets have approached the subject. Dokins inscribes various poems of Japanese haiku that are related to this phenomenon, in each layer is creating a texture where reflects the mood of sunset and where the sunset gives way to the rule of the Moon.
