"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!!"

WHEN EYE WOKE UP DREAMING
plucked like an apple from a gravity tree
everything started to levitate(including me!
Eye was sure this was a fantasy/i could live within
to be time's dervish dancer-and to Sufi spin!
Even Rumi had Shams/Pound T S Eliot
Omar Khyham Fitzgerald's version
Filters flavored like wine water
Little miracles in the afterglow/
eye left these moments long before ago
yet like stray dogs they still follow me home.
