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

Neptun the Mystic by Gustav Holst

A planet blue
So far from here
Named for the God
Of the oceans
So clear
Azure crystal blue
So beautiful
So powerful
Poseidon’s home
With the name
of Neptune
Unique for its beauty
Beyond all visions
Godlike in perfection
So cold and distant
So far away
Like heaven
