Edge Of The Dream: Becoming The Creator

Poem By Russ von Ohlhausen

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.
The Creator was this Nothing
and felt only the emptiness of the void.

The Creator inspired to create
but there was nothing except what was within,
from which to give it form.
All things that 'were and were not',
that 'are and are not' and
'to be and not to be'
resided within the center of perfect stillness
that was to become the Creator.
These things within desired to separate and take form.

With a sound, the Creator burst open and
poured forth the Creation from all manner of substance within.
When there was Time, The Creator looked into the face of the created
and said 'This Creation, I AM'.
With those words, the Creator dissolved completely into the Creation
and the Creation replied, 'I have come from all of the substance
and thoughts that you are.
Indeed The Creator, AM I.'

(To those who have inquired, this prose is not an affirmation of any religious belief. Quite to the contrary, it is a philosophical awareness of our oneness with all things, as we have come into being... together.)

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
