Rob Ayling writes: "Thom the World poet, is an old mate of mine from way back in my history. Even pre-dating Voiceprint, when I was running "Otter Songs" and Tom's poetry tapes and guest appearences with Daevid Allen, Gilli Smyth, Mother Gong are well known and highly regarded. It just felt right to include a daily poem from Thom on our Gonzo blog and when I approached him to do so, he replied with in seconds!!!
Thom is a great talent and just wants to spread poetry, light and positive energy across the globe. If we at Gonzo can help him do that - why not? why not indeed!!"
second hand world
luminaries flicker through front doors
sharing Tales Of Brave Adventures-
they were there in Golden Times
i listen like a microphone
to stories from another time
transport them through rhyme
witness second hand
too many wars tub thumping hate
when we need more to relate
tales of peace and harmonies
art,music,love in poetry
so this reminds our warring times
we all may live in different minds
Solutions we have yet to find
A garden we are growing in..
