Chasing Horizon

Poem By Russ von Ohlhausen

You shiver,
uncertain in this place i know so well
Gone ahead to meet you,
alone i tread this ground
half in, half out, it finds me.

Dreaming takes me,
closer, on to my horizon
You catch up then i move on,
alone we tread this ground
the edge i create, it always finds me.

Stillness takes us,
no more afar horizon
Dissolved in this vision, across i step,
with this ground we are tread
the other side embraces, we’re lost within it.

I am, all there was before,
reached the place no longer there,
I feel the footsteps of those behind us,
upon this ground that we have mingled,
I become the horizon.

Poets Are Losers

The art of the word yields little fruit when it's first conceived;
It must take root and grow in passionate minds if ever to be received.
A craft much learned of sadness from this world we’re in,
As we suffer right along until our solemn end.

Beautiful Destruction

A rough rain falls on the river running as a
fisher casts over tainted water, and
Black blood burns as the wars are raging and the
soldiers argue who’s hell is hotter.

Envy The Common Man

How I envy the Common Man,

To live in the world that we create.
To drift on the winds with no debate.

Lost In Thought

(A fun little diversion)

I thought I thought a thought,
a thought I thought I thought.


I melt with the snow on the tops of mountains
I babble with the voice of the humble waters
I sip from the lake on the open plains

Edge Of The Dream: Becoming The Creator

In the time before Time, there was the void of nothing that was not known,
for nothing existed to know it.
The Creator was not then the Creator
for nothing was then created.
