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)

JIMI HENDRIX'S BIRTHDAY


Every year,we gather @Brad's
for a pot luck/campfire and a music jam
File:Jimi Hendrix 1967.png2012 sees a Full Moon and Jupiter shine
while we are inside improvising
Folk come in from Happy Jacks
i hand them poetry(they hand it back)
They have come to join in a living sound track
So its up to the standing microphone
Drummer girl has hands on drums
Brad on guitar with Jimi riffs
JC on guitar electronics
and we are Jimi's Children now
He birthed us in the white blues
(starshine in an Age of Cloud)
Guitars and smiles weave communities
of those addicted to harmonies/and we
will always remember him
every time-with improvising
To be born happens in every awakening
Jimi is with us-just keep on jammin!

...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.
