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)


a dream to get you through

one dream will never do-each moment sings to you
attunement to the "good,the beautiful,the true"
Harmony may lie within-yet this world around you spins
in ways that elevate  and levitate every single dream
Look around you now-example waits to show you
new ways through your daily labyrinth.And if a wall
may block your view of forests(all walls are temporary-
every prison sentence has a limit on its time,too!
Here is another dream to get you through-
you are not the one one who has come
to this conundrum-time,limits,will,energy,truth
seem to be in short supply,and when asking why?
there is no answer in "because".A dream begets a thought
begets an action towards a goal that will open up new doors.
Any dream will do-to animate and activate you
into a panacea and a remedy for what may be blocking you.
Here is just another dream to get you through...

...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.
