"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 appearances 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!!"

IF LOVE IS FOOD
start with a meal for one-a solo serve-
begin with what you love rather than who-
plants,pets,places-proceeding to people
only when your own love has watered them to life
Begin slowly.You were loved in to this life-
in the Great Chain of Being,we are all linked
One Day For Love is never enough!Red roses and chocolates poor food!
Nourishment begins with preparation for a meal that sustains over time
A banquet!A buffet! A brilliant multi-course sustainable enterprise
vegan or vegetarian in variety,valued voraciously!No dull horsemeat dilution!
If food be love-plant seeds in the crops of desire
May your harvests grow ever higher!
