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

why we grieve a harvest

grieving a harvest
of sorrow
we planted the seed
of ire
and reaped
our very generation's
burning fires
we begged
for grain
but ate the seed
left none for winter
and instead
entered a sleep
so deep
beckons come here
my child
we might well be dead
our secrets will keep
and the future
might never
bother to appear
