It’s shine cannot be ignored. 

Big and bright. Laced in gold. 

Begging to be held and owned. 

Sparkling, distracting, exciting.

Thus you reach out in a heartbeat. 

You stretch forth to grasp it.

The Burden of Will

An Apoetsbrain Original. All rights reserved © Written 5th January 2022


I am doing what we humans do. Just like birds perch, I am 

Standing quietly on the front porch. 

Overseeing the activities of fellow human beings. 

The man drawing on a  smoke seated beneath a weeping tree. 

The man walking his dog in his winter pajamas. 

His dog’s tail wagging aggressively. 

The street vendor playing his sales recording ceaselessly. 

The ethnic man taking a pandering walk around the neighbourhood. 

The youths moving around with the apparent burden of adulthood.

The Unpredictable Designer

Featured poem by Bonsu-Adjei Arthur © All rights reserved


He cuddles a baby to sleep

Yet researched in the Books of the Pharisees

He draws the algorithm of creation, yet his algorithm seems inverted

For geometry is authored by his hands, pinpointing him at the center

Apoetsbrain Photography: Beautifully Dangerous

Innocent and harmless it appears.

It seems as though it has no other care in the world but to glide and twirl across the waters.

Its every move made as though to mesmerize and hypnotize its prey.  

Its color dancing to the light pretending to be light itself.

But like a moth hopelessly drawn to a flame, 

its poison soon spreads, 

and the hug you came over to give turns to a strangle.

Soon mesmerized and breathless you fall.

True Laughter

Have you laughed? I mean really truly laughed.

You know the type that starts from your feet making your toes curl. That one that travels up your legs making them shake like a leaf in the wind.

That laughter that boils up in your belly like steam in an enclosed space looking for a way out. That one that literally causes you pain until you open your throat and let it all out and open.

2022 Here We Go!

It is always such a wonder when a new year comes around. It is a marvellous thing to be alive. To be breathing, to be thinking, to be feeling, to be sane.

Things may not always be perfect but it is incredible that we have strength in our bones, shelter over our heads, and food to eat.

Looking back at 2021, we see the grace and goodness of God layered heavily on each day.

Thus, for this new year, let’s live in gratitude. Let our testimony always be

“This is a minute, an hour, a day, a week, a month, a year, and a life that the Lord has made. I will rejoice and be glad in it. “ Amen


HAPPY NEW YEAR FROM APOETSBRAIN UNIVERSE! IT’S A YEAR OF GRATITUDE, PEACE, AND GREAT UNENDING JOY!
