Description

A collection of poetry written over the course of nine years, following the poet's journey through adversity and adventure. From dreams to darkness, from God to courage, these poems will show you that life can be shaped by the depths of your imagination. This is a book for all those who fall, but rise up stronger, a book which will help the reader see the light even in the deepest abyss. Mason's use of poetry as a means of salvation is an inspiration for all of us.

The poems follow lose threads of hope, loss, redemption, discovery and courage. They are woven together by a belief in the power of writing, a continuing faith that humanity can still do immense good as well as harm.

Review quote

Windward is a compendium of poems written over the period of nine years in the author's turbulent life. The poet emerges from the darkness of his past experiences thanks to the bulwark of hope he finds in his art. His poetry is sometimes sharp and echoing of loss, but it also touches upon wider meanings in a positive and thoughtful way. The reader is led on to experience a life-changing journey. The poet's imagination, feeding on his tumultuous past and on his hopes of a brighter future, follows the guiding light of 'purpose' towards salvation, conjuring dreams of a better life, religious musings and edifying adventures through adversity. Windward could leave you riding a gust of poetic license, or fighting through a raging gale of indignation at society's inequalities - but, however you reach the end, you will remember it. - Frank Nash
