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.

When I Consider the Heavens

When I consider Your heavens, the work of Your fingers,
The moon and the stars, which You have ordained,
What is man that You are mindful of him,
And the son of man that You visit him?
For You have made him a little lower than the angels,
And You have crowned him with glory and honor.

Psalm 8: 3-5

Beside the Still Waters

“The LORD is my shepherd, I shall not be in want. He makes me lie down in green pastures, he leads me beside quiet waters, He restores my soul. He guides me in paths of righteousness for his name’s sake. Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for You are with me; Your rod and your staff, they comfort me.

You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies. You anoint my head with oil; my cup overflows. Surely goodness and love will follow me all the days of my life, and I will dwell in the house of the LORD forever.”

~ Psalm 23
