"Monsoon season comes the same way it does every year, & only now do I understand how to breathe in the scent of this peculiar remembering."

It is hard to find words that can genuinely describe how I am feeling after this. Not exactly like finally coming home after a long journey – it is something else, the way I got a small break through Winters' words from whatever it was that has been on my mind for way too long.

If you are unfamiliar with the work of Topaz Winters I might seem biased to you, as I have already given her poetry collection Heaven or This, published in June last year, a five-star rating (and I don't give a lot of those). I find it remarkable how much Winters appears to have matured in this chapbook with prose that is utterly powerful in how quietly, calmly it bleeds into my mind, only to paint whole stories of monsoon skies across it.

I am looking forward to more of her magic.
