"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 Thom'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 within 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?
I AM ALIVE AFTER MIDNIGHT
when the sparks of emails fly to the fires in your arts
when all the whirl is a sleeping.Then Dreams take their part
I like the shade and shadow.Oblique of Autumn's charms
Spring in its green cheekiness.Winter for withdrawal symptoms
Now is all i love.Now and now and YES!
Whatever heated Season it may be outside
inside is air-conditioned!
