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

She Dances Before the King

In the winter air
She dances nude
In complete devotion
To the king of despair
He is silent to her offerings
She is devout in her faith
While her children sing praise
To the king
She moves in trance
In the cold, midnight dark
A beautiful scene
This dance
Witnessed only
By the stars
And her heart
