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

Crashing storm

Nature is ruthless
Along with serene
When it acts
By its whim
It requires no belief
You'll know when it has begun
The ground stands firm
The earth never moves
Solidly beneath my feet
Stands firm when the rain comes
But with the thunder crashing
The lightning ahead warns
The storm moves swiftly
The sky falls collapsing
The wave of rain and warm
Electric is the air
Lightning bolts fall
Pounding down
In a rhythm
Without a master hand
Drumming the tribal sound
