The Poems

Alex has been a photographer since he was in grade school. He has a diploma in digital photography. He thoroughly enjoys various arts.


The Absence

Stress is the absence of complete necessity.
Love is the absence of want.
Hate is the absence of awareness.
Sadness is the absence of hope.

A Filled Cup

If my cup is full, what shall I do?
The waiter loves an empty cup.
The empty cup gives purpose.


Some people love dogs.
Others love reptiles.
Some like to cuddle.
Others to observe.
Too few like both.

Of Gods And Men

A God is a god.
But a god is not a God, no?
Is a man a Man,
because a Man is a man?
