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!!"

SEEING VISIONS
ICONICA
Worship All There Is/
Icon,Mirror,Consciousness-
Reflect Upon These..

Mirror on the wall
"Mirror to a mirror stand"
Infinity? YES!

Eye see what you say-
Worship is always private
Shared out in public

Color/splash of red
Doors open within these walls
Eyes follow us out.

Basic as Metal
Calligraphy.Emotions.
(This Art Saved her Life!)

WE LIVE! (Individuals-
Each frame limits our love/life
Russian /Open/He/arts.

Icons/Transitions
Eye watch them/as they watch me
Eyes through the veil..

Image/Everything

Through this painted world

Spirals of stillness
Spin Dervish Wonderment

All eyes/different

...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.
