I am a poet who has both been published and self published. All work on this blog is all copyright Alex Ness. While I make very little money from my work I am technically a professional. Measuring by the hours I've written I am professional. My goal is to share my work with as many people that can read it, as far as the internet may reach with it. I hope if you are moved you will share this blog with others, and perhaps buy my books.

Whatever the result, thank you for viewing this blog. I cannot express how greatly I appreciate the many people, from many places upon the earth, who have visited.

I bid you peace.

Je ne regrette pas la douleur, car il m'a fait plus forte

The Message

Living water
Found in a desert
Bread of life
Locusts and wild honey
A meal for a Nazarean
Nothing but the desert earth
To live upon
And the Jordan river
To sait the thirst
One would come
Ready to call
One was ready
Set to deliver
Found in a desert
The baked ground
Of Eden’s waste land
Somehow fit
For a king of heaven
Let alone, king of men
One would enter
The water of the Jordan
And another would pour
The water upon him
And the spirit of God
Would descend
And God become
Would be baptised
Ready now
For his message to send

Behold, I send My messenger before Your face, who will prepare Your way before You
