As she says: "I was born in place of Weeping Willows and Sweet Magnolia Trees." Isis Imani Sanders is a very interesting and diversified personality with a smile that's electric. She said she has spent many warm summer nights singing songs of praise as she sat on the front porch in her mama's favorite green rocking chair. She is a child of faith; the 7th child born on the 7th day of February; she has been sucessful in many of her personal endeavours, and although each step carried with it a set of its own struggles, she persevered. She is no stranger to poetry--she has been writing since her junior high school years but generally viewed it as "only a way to express what I felt inside." She has also participated in the off-Broadway version of Ntozake Shange's Choreopoem play "For Colored Girls Who Consider Suicide When The Rainbow Is Enough." She is dedicated to helping others achieve ther goals through what she calls her injection of Positive Empowerment talks. Her love of children lead her to become a licensed foster parent, willing to stand in the gap and give what love she can to a child in need. In this, her first published book of poetry, she has managed to gather all of her experiences, her love for people and the pursuit of a deeper understanding and meaning for life, into what might be called a Capsule of Poetry that will enrich our lives, move our spirits and not fail to get into our hearts and minds.
