THOM THE WORLD POET: The Daily Poem


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!!" (The wondrous poetpic is by Jack McCabe, who I hope forgives me for scribbling all over it with Photoshop)


TRANCE FORMATIONS

"IN the beginning was THE WORD!
and the sound was good, ambient, cool and flowing -
chants, affirmations, mantras. Out of silence
came a New World aligned with consciousness
aware of self and others as reflections
(mirror to a mirror - echoing dimensions)
Now sing your way through every day.
Connected to all Source of Being and Becoming -
we are in flux and flow is all we know-so!
When your inner ears hear heart beat
Rattling pots and pans on busy peopled streets
It may be time to activate for peace
is a verb,a participle,a part of speech
both personal and political.VOTE ! SPEAK!
Watch as your verbal worlds petition all you need..

...BECAUSE SOME OF US THINK THAT THIS STUFF IS IMPORTANT
What happens when you mix what is - arguably - the world's most interesting record company, with an anarchist manic-depressive rock music historian polymath, and a method of dissemination which means that a daily rock-music magazine can be almost instantaneous?

Most of this blog is related in some way to the music, books and films produced by Gonzo Multimedia, but the editor has a grasshopper mind and so also writes about all sorts of cultural issues which interest him, and which he hopes will interest you as well.
