...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 and 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!!" 

BOBBING FOR APPLES&BURNING BONFIRES
Begging for hazelnuts /autumn flowers
Divination &Ceremonials/Harvest Festivals/Autumnal
Nature spirits-faeries,piskies,sprites
Opening the circle for focused attention/closing it when safe and sound
It is Somer's end/between Autumn Equinox and Summer Solstice
Thin veils between the worlds are easily torn.Spirits &skeletons
with as much presence as your remembrance of elders&ancestors.
Pumpkins as Jack O Lanterns.Rituals of Trick or Treat.Rich textures
so strong /ones needs masks and costumes.Powers afoot!
Nature has Seasons,as we do .To honor them elementally
as Light and Dark,Court and Spark,Autumn to Winter
remembers our origins in a Northern Hemisphere.
Unaware ,children are dressed as monsters ,ogres ,superheroes

with plastic buckets begging toxic sugar
