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)


AIR DROP: Turning air into water
WE LIVE IN DESERTS
watch,wait,witness biodiversity
to see which creatures best adapt
Desert Rhubarb and Nahib Beetle
gave the idea to Edward Linacre
for a solar-powered AirDrop Device-
a case of biomimicry/adaptation-
taking air from above the soil
and cooling it below ground
causing the water in the air to condense
(passive system of sub-surface drip irrigation
This relieves the problem of salinity
and feeds the roots of plants 
where moisture is most needed.
Air in to water?Australia/America-

YES PLEASE!

...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.
