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?"
HOW TRACE NEW STEPS
WHEN ALL LEAD TO (K)NOW?
Days unplugged,nights dreaming boats aflame
Viking marks on stones to show others came before
we who were only once now multi-dimensional
silence a salve/sifting ,shredding,strangling sounds
until that last bubble diver releases to the deep,and joins
those before he and her who sleep in oxygen embrace.Take
time to lose time.Let it go like ashes/bones.Shades and shapes
that otherwise would cling and sing of sailors passed and deep.
Stay shallow,intimate.Release all that was-to better enter this Temple of (K)Now
Even when you cease,or slow,or stop-your breath continues on.Until it stops..
Then you must learn New Words..to Olde Songs..
Adrienne Rich on writing, freedom, and how silence fertilizes the imagination
“The impulse to create begins — often terribly and fearfully — in a tunnel of silence. Every real poem is the breaking of an existing silence.”
