About the Book

The Poetess combines the work of 21 poetesses from around the world. For centuries the
poetess was only known as “anonymous”. One of main objectives of this project was to find
and publish the next wave of great poetesses and give their voices a name. We searched the
world through poetry websites and Facebook groups to bring these 21 together. The selected
poetesses are from Brazil, Spain, India, Puerto Rico, Nigeria, Philippines,
Zimbabwe, Kenya, Bhutan, Malawi, Uganda, the UK, and the US. They range in age from 17 to
77 years old. Other objectives included providing them a larger stage, increased credibility, and
a chance to motivate their family, friends, and future family members that they might not ever
get the chance to know. Together these 21 beautiful voices send their voice into the universe
creating their positive ripple of new thoughts. They leave their work in The Poetess for other
poetesses to carry forward.

The Poetess is the vision of Blair Smith who also financed and promoted the project, and
Theophilus Agbu Clement AKA “Theo” is credited as the editor and coordinator. It is our great
hope these 21 inspire the next 21 and so on such that the positive ripples they have created are
infinite.

About the Author
Blair Smith

Blair Smith is a retired Navy Pilot and flew for Delta Air Lines prior to the events on 9-11. He has flown all over the world and has seen and experienced more in one lifetime than many could ever experience in ten lifetimes. He has preserved his memory to positive thinking and even despite many atrocities in this world Blair can always find the positive light. He expresses himself in this manner in Poetry and his work may be used in Literary College Classes.

The one message Blair hopes to convey to his readers is that Peace on Earth is something that is a possibility, in his own words Blair said, “Nothing has gotten man into more trouble than human certainty. We have been at war for centuries over our human certainties and continue to kill off each other over our need to be right about our certainties, our need to be certain over our religions, and our certainty in our forms of Government. For it is between the roots of human certainty that lies man’s greatest battlefield. Human certainty like all closed belief systems prevents the possibility of greater universal truths. I am for greater universal truths and for the possibility that peace on Earth is a reality we all can achieve together by letting go of our certainties.”
