"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?" 

The Geometry of Energy: How to Meditate
WE ARE IN PROCESS(this is no metaphor!
We begin each moment  as part of where we came from
in trance formation towards being fully present
which morphs into a future worth both having ,then releasing
to allow more wild birds to flap across our migrating skies
Dynamic/kinetic emotions are wild creatures,too!
They change like clouds  and weather patterns
They isolate and celebrate,in choice,free will and compulsions
There are deeper waters beneath our dancing ice feet
They too,feel global warming and emotional heat
Whether we are penguins gathered for convivial company
or polar bears who cannot swim,like frogs
we learn haiku breath in PLOP!syllables
knowing there is always more to learn

even posthumously,our mistakes we earn..

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.
