Collis Sherman Bell's Sweet Island Breezes presents a collection that spotlights her native homeland, The Bahamas. With her poetry, she hopes to entertain, enlighten, engage, and inspire readers and create a deeper appreciation for the beauty and richness of the islands. Bell's poetry resonates with the challenge to recapture, cherish, or create our own island memories. Sweet Island Breezes includes poems and essays based upon and inspired by her life in the islands. Her verses explore her childhood, family, and friends, with a particular focus on depicting Bimini, the island of her birth. For example, her poem, 'Sunrise to Sunset,' describes a typical day in Bimini in the 1970s. Other poems deal with her faith and offer hope and encouragement to everyone. Bell's commitment to her community is evident in her poems about social issues like education and paying it forward. Sweet Island Breezes offers an inspiring collection of works conjuring lovely memories of her life in The Bahamas and also provides a glimpse into her present life and beliefs.
