Caribbean Passion by Opal Palmer Adisa

Caribbean Passion

Opal Palmer Adisa

This is a collection of poems about the Caribbean. All human and Caribbean life is here - sex, growing up, growing old, history, hope and much more. What emerges is a varied collection with a powerful sense of place uniting the whole.

Extract

heartlands of flowers
nations of birthrights
we held the ocean
in the bowl of our palms

we were shallow waters
guanahani not bahamas
children diamonded in the ocean
under the noonday sun.
