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

Another day will pass

In prayer
In the shallow hours
Of the naked morning
Where the only sound
Is of the sleeping bodies
And the breaking dawn
I am still
And I have always known
That the day will pass
And turn to dust
Another will birth
So I must trust
That my aim is true
The seeds I've sewn
Will bring life anew
Because I believe
In more than this

"Learn to love death's ink-black shadow as much as you love the light of dawn." Tyrtaeus
