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?"
NAKED BODIES OF ELDERS
DUMPED ON LUMBER TRUCKS
Chained tight so none escaped
So none rolled out and down and away from
So all would be cut and chipped and made smaller
So those who cut might appear larger
Once were together,standing tall
Machine and chainsaw slice,chop,cut
Sap flows like blood.Limbs cut off.
Why do we impute intelligence to humans?
Birds trust trees to nest within(but not us
We see trees as harvest/houses/timber/lumber
Products to be processed into service
Yet we cannot make a multispecies /we
isolate and make mono-species pine plantations
where no bird sings/where lonely is only rows
like uniform products on assembly lines.STOP!
Until you can create/replicate Gaia's complexities
Let all old growth /indigenous wild forests
