...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.

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

PLANET EARTH IS YOU

SHE WANTED TO RE-VERSE
so to Fukushima,where Buddhists pray
and spray prayers and seaweed on radiating waters
to Ancient Iraq of antiquity /our Cradle of Civilization
where Writing Began,and Deserts Spun Stories of Empires
Bring Rain Inspiration-Make Rainforests from Dry Sands
Bring Flow and Connection-Restore Wilderness (again!
Release wolf and bison back to unfenced lands.
Make Parks and Gardens Bloom Again!
Plant Multi-Species.Turn all weapons into seeds of future harvests
We are as elements/elementals,combined and combining.Our codes click
with those we eat.More than mind-we are more than pasts.
If and when we Dream Deep Again-All Will Be Possible!
Until Zen-this is Petitioning Our Common Consciousness/Heritage-

It says(YOU say)-EVERYTHING IS POSSIBLE -TODAY!
