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 is light

songs about her
whisper upon the wind
she gazes upon the sun
seizing chance
she is born with brand new skin
when she breathes, it has begun
sun's light poured through stained glass

we are awakening
from the cold
the sun so beautiful
the colors so bold

her smiles awakens the day
turning the day into a kaleidoscope
colors spray at last
because we're pawns in a game
black and white caricatures frozen
Forever in the form we are cast

tell us we are awakening
bring us in from the cold
let us find the sun to be beautiful
let the colors be bold
