AUTHOR: Pepper Blair
Truly timeless and universal in appeal, Blair's lines perhaps should not be ascribed to the biography of a single individual. Is it not sometimes enhancing to let the reader form an (even idealized) image of the author? Words are spirit (especially good poetry), and to reduce them to the product of human vanity would lessen their collective virtue.
Suffice it to say, Pepper Blair's poems are original works, composed by the hand of one who has loved the same earth and sky as have all people, regardless of their personal histories.
BOOK #2: Sharing in the Candlelight
This book and Beautiful by Firelight, it could be said, are like two wings of the same high-flying dove. Companion books, they address the sentiments of love and take verse to an elevation author Pepper Blair is noted for.
Sharing in the Candlelight showcases shorter poems, the essence of which can move like spirit on the wind. When works are concise enough to be remembered in the heart, they cannot be lost or destroyed, but can live forever by virtue of the spoken word. Perhaps they may even be bettered over time in the process.
First and foremost an art form, poetry has existed since human expression began. Many have been, are, and will be compelled to speak. As for the rest of us...it would only be gracious that we should listen.
BOOK #3: I Shall Not Forget the Story
"...In this book, Pepper Blair shares stories set to poetry. You will find these short poems endearing and will anticipate their endings..."
