He has two published collection of poems—Upare Farcha Akash ( The wide sky above) and Tale Basumata (The Mother Earth below).

Cast romantically his poems encompass in their sweep broader themes of love, despair and enduring human aspirations. Prof. J.M.Mohanty opines, "Shri Sahoo's sensibility has been tempered by his profession which has provided an extra dimension to his poetry, a more thoughtful and richer one, to his feelings of empathy and involvement".
