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

Smoke from the fires
Black smoke rises
Clouding the view
The raven ascends
To the heights he flies
A raven glides above
The broken earth below
The battle was over
Fall the walls
Of Jericho
A creature of wisdom
Has watched mankind
And offers no advice
He will rise
Upon the wind
And never return again
