"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!!"

WHAT DO WE REALLY OWN?
THIS TIME BELONGS TO US
Like some classic or pulp novel
It has beginning,middle and an end
We are characters.We do not know our lines
(Now Use that metaphor of drama or film-
Roles to play and consciousness to thrill
Edges and perimeters define us
Kinetic in a dance of sprung rhythms
Flowers ,weeds,gardens -all One
As we broken,heal.As we fall,rise!
Friends surround us in these days
Love moon and stars each night
These times are precious and unique
They belong to us.FULL FLIGHT!
Many many positive vibes and blessings Daevid, and of course fellow Gongsters, much love heart emoticon heart emoticon heart emoticon
