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

Unto the ever
One tear joins the ocean
A single atom
In eternal motion
Steadfast reason
Emotion passing like seasons
Rains falling
Bringing life
Dry cycles
Enduring drought
Ever present blight
Continuing our fight
Our lives are wrought
Spark and clay
Perfectly built
In harmony
With need
Drinking from the fountain
That renews
Our hearts
Become mountains
Of faith
Justified and true
Perfectly happy
And nothing askew
