Dawn On My Mind

Dawn On My Mind is a collection of poems through which the author seeks to ‘hold a reasoning’ with you, the reader.

Williams shares his thoughts about life and living in a way that is simple, generous and honest.

The range of subjects that he broaches is diverse; nature, life, humour, romance are a few and the pieces are captivating from start to finish.

The use of literary devices is quite successful as they creatively express what is on his mind.

The simple style but deep message that each poem conveys, work well, as they do not lend themselves to over-interpretation.
