"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?
The species we recognize as "human"
is bound in time and limited.
Our ways of seeing ourselves
(and the worlds around us)-are also limited
But this does not stop us-from pontificating
as to plausible possible ways of understanding.
Philosophy is our ally(as is science)
and we spend most of our ticking tolled time
avoiding existential questions.Answers are optional!
Questions arise when we seek to understand
our place in this Uni-verse/who we are and where we are heading.
This does not matter to stars,nebulae,bacteria or planets
It matters to us!Kurzgesagt!
