"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!!"

It is a long way to the mail box
Yet, every day, a new gift arrives -
paperweights, lipstick - all from anonymous angels who appreciate.
Positive reinforcement holds Heavens together.
Worlds rely upon angelic weather patterns - blue skies and joy
allow us to fly above our little selves
embrace all that is with a kiss of release
For we are angel gifts to each of us
Unique and irreplaceable, each to each
the gift of presence more than most
makes up for inevitable absences.
Anonymous is always best
who else could claim such angelic innocence?
