"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?
HOW MANY BIRDS FIT IN ONE SKY?
ALL OF THEM!
Unlike gridlocked,garaged,broken cars
Grackles winged clouds swirl with grace
to make black the blue background sky
You are each bird,on each cloud branch,rising,high.
Flight is a dream of astral traveling.Eyes unlock
You lift off.Above is more than Tesla possible.
Body cage opens to new possibilities
Travel means more than all you feel,sense and see.
Worlds await you when you rise
Freedom begins in your art and mind.
